"A touching tale of trust and deceptions, love and hatred and courage in the face of adversity. This work is bound to captivate the readers with its unique theme and skillfully executed story-line. The characters are drawn in detail and capture the readers imagination."
The sun was going down on the Carquinez Woods. The few shafts of sunlight that had pierced their pillared gloom were lost in unfathomable depths, or splintered their ineffectual lances on the enormous trunks of the redwoods. For a time the dull red of their vast columns, and the dull red of their cast-off bark which matted the echoless aisles, still seemed to hold a faint glow of the dying day. But even this soon passed.
