“Macbeth moves to the Depression-era Great Smoky Mountains in the finest novel yet by Ron Rash. Ambitious newlywed timber moguls George and Serena Pemberton ravage the mountain landscape while savaging their competitors and fiercely resisting allies of the budding conservation movement. Filled with Shakespearean levels of deception, cruelty, and retribution (mountain-style), Serena speaks to current times with its portrait of modern business greed colliding with a very old land and its inhabitants.”
-- John Grooms, Park Road Books, Charlotte, NC
