In the summer of his twenty-first year Brandon Rhodes came to Kingstree Island, a four-hour boat ride from the mainland and a tiny world unto itself. He found an easygoing, friendly people, a land where he could escape the memory of his mother's death, and a young woman he could love. But Matt Tomlinson, the gruff, tyrannical patriarch of Kingstree Island, didn't like intruders ... and ordered Brandon to leave. As the rift between the two men deepened, the whole island became torn by changing loyalties and bitter resentments ... until the final clash between blind hate and desperate love exploded at last in a fury of fatal violence.
