Ron Rash hit the interest target with "Serena", a story about a couple of timber barons with money at heart as they try to cut the original growth timber of the NC mountains. It has love, greed, ecology, mystery, and murder set during the depression to hold your attention. I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

I thought this book was very entertaining. I had a little bit of a hard time getting into it, probably due to the time period that it is set in. Serena is fierce and an odd character. I was disappointed in how much the back cover gave away about the novel though, so just don't look at the back cover!

Writer pulls you into this story set in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina. Main character is a strong woman who does what she needs to do to get what she wants. Unexpected ending ....

Really enjoyed this book; the characters were brought to life by the author, and the descriptions of the scenery and setting so lifelike, felt like I was transported back in time. Would have liked for a better ending, but still a wonderful, vivid book.
