Publisher Comments:

A New York Times bestseller and PEN/Faulkner Award Finalist, Serena by award-winning author Ron Rash ismasterfully written…sprawling, engrossing and—from time to time—nightmarish,” (San Francisco Chronicle); a remarkable novel that “recalls both John Steinbeck and Cormac McCarthy,” (The New Yorker). Rashs chilling gothic tale of greed, corruption, and revenge set against the backdrop of the 1930s wilderness and Americas burgeoning environmental movement was named a Best Book of the Year by more than a dozen national publications, including the New York Times, Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, Chicago Tribune, and Miami Herald. Serena is brilliant contemporary fiction that exquisitely balances beauty and violence, passion and rage, cruelty and love.

Synopsis:

In  1959, the Brown siblings were the biggest thing in country music. Their inimitable harmony  would give rise to the polished sound of the multibillion dollar country-music industry we know today. But when the bonds of family began to fray, the flame of their celebrity proved as brilliant as it was fleeting. Masterfully jumping between the Browns' once-auspicious past and the heartbreaking present, Nashville Chrome is the richly imagined story of a forgotten family and an unflinching portrait of an era in American music. In his "breath-catching, mythic and profoundly American tale of creation, destruction and renewal" (Kansas City Star), Rick Bass mines quiet truths and draws poignant portraits of lives lived both in and out of the limelight.

Serena is an unforgettable character, a strong, ruthless, beautiful woman. Lady Macbeth in the woods of 1930s North Carolina. This book stayed with me a long, long time.

Ron Rash has a way of making characters come to life. Environmental issues such as the tim er industry are woven with a story of love, ambition and courage.
