The Forever Tree
They came from two different worlds, but nothing and no one can keep them apart.
Will Lassater comes to California to build a logging empire, never expecting to fall in love with the golden land. Then he beholds Santana, the exotic Spanish beauty, and in her dark, luminous eyes he sees all that is beautiful and irresistible about the rich and fertile country — all that he wishes to possess yet does not fully understand.
With every beat of her innocent heart Santana knows that this tall, handsome, blue-eyed American is the only man she could ever love. But between Santana and Will stands a lifetime of tradition — and a powerful and ruthless Spanish don who vows to kill any man who dares to covet his intended bride. Now, as Will’s dream of Lassater Mills becomes a reality, he will risk everything to make Santana his own. And though love cannot protect them from vengeful enemies or the fires of change raging across this land, it may give them the strength to face an uncertain future, and in the midst of tragedy the courage to begin anew.
