Publisher Comments:

It is the early 1900s in rural Kentucky, and young Saul Sullivan is heading up to Redbud Camp to look for work. He is wary but unafraid of the Cherokee girl there whose beauty is said to cause the death of all men who see her. But the minute Saul lays eyes on Vine, he knows she is meant to be his wife. Vines mother disapproves of the mixed marriage; Sauls mother, Esme, has always been ill at ease around the Cherokee people. But once Vine walks into Gods Creek, Sauls mother and brother Aaron take to her immediately. It quickly becomes clear to Vine, though, that Aaron is obsessed with her. And when Saul leaves Gods Creek for a year to work in another county, the wife he leaves behind will never be the same again. The violence that lies ahead for Vine, will not only test her spirit, but also her ability to forgive—both others and herself. . . .

We are reading this book for our book club this month and I have found it to be a very good read. I am from rural Ky so I was very interested in reading this book. It is set back in the early 1900s and seems very true to form of what I have heard about the area, people and beliefs then. The characters are intriguing and the writing exceptional. I highly recommend this book to others.
