This is one of my favorite Anne Rivers Siddon's books. A novel set in Georgia that combines suspense and an environmental mystery. I almost hate to swap it.

Not for everyone, but I really liked it. A little overlong sometimes, but if you enjoy rich descriptions that really get you into the setting, not too much.

Leaving behind a disastrous marriage, Diaana "Andy" Calhoun moves to the small town of Pemberton, Georgia, "in search of banality." What she discovers, though, is not serenity, but Tom Dabney, a passionate and magical man.

An exuberant poet who worships the wilderness surrounding Pemberton, Tom is everything Andy doesn't need in her life right now. But despite warnings from friends, Andy is soon deeply immersed in Tom's life and his world...a world he will do anything to protect. When Tom declares war on the enemy poisoning his woods, it becomes clear that Andy must choose between her life with Tom and the one she left behind - if Pemberton society will take her back.
