From back cover: Maya's children would never know the hunger that she and her sisters had faced. That she had promised herself as she stood by her mother's grave. And though Hale Hawthorne was a ruthless man who had gained success at the price of his gentler, human side, he had offered her the priceless gift of a secure future.

Yet Hale's son had made Maya his own, and she could never forget the youthful Will. Nor could she control the burning desire that ruled her days and tormented her nights for the handsome boy who had vowed to make her pay for her betrayal.

Great book by Ann Maxwell (aka Elizabeth Lowell) and husband Even Maxwell. I particularly enjoyed the historical references to the history of the California Redwood forest and logging procedures since that's where I'm from!
