Has anyone read this novel? http://www.amazon.com/Serena-A-Novel-Ron-Rash/dp/0061470856

Apparently there's going to be a movie starring J-Law and Bradley Cooper (so hot :o)


The film follows newlyweds George (Cooper) and Serena Pemberton (Lawrence) who travel from Boston to the mountains of North Carolina where they begin to build a timber empire in 1929. Serena soon shows herself to be the equal of any man: overseeing crews, hunting rattle-snakes, even saving a manís life in the wilderness. Together, this king and queen rule their dominion, killing or vanquishing all who stand in the way of their ambitions. But when Serena learns that she can never bear a child, she sets out to murder the woman who bore George a son before his marriage. And when she starts to suspect that George is protecting his illegitimate family, the Pembertonsí intense, passionate marriage begins to unravel as the story moves toward its shocking reckoning.

Female version of 'Daniel Plainview', sounds intriguing. I might read the novel.

they make for an odd couple, don't they? maybe it's the age gap.
