Description: Deep in untrammeled countryside is a secret grove, a place of magic, power, and yearning. The branches exult a song unsullied by anything dark or wicked. It is Natalie's Grove. Mason, one of the few modern decent men left, finds himself caught between Becky, despairing, abandoned, and pregnant, and Natalie, innocent, pure, and virginal. Love decides for him; he chooses Natalie. But Mason begins to hear a sinister note invade the perfect song of the sacred grove. It is seductive and disturbing, profane in that place of beauty. Or is it? And why can't Natalie hear it?

"She gave me directions until I had no idea where we were. She finally instructed me to park by some farm's neglected fields, making her way through the weeds even before I'd turned the engine off." ... "We trotted past the field to a heavily wooded area, plunging into the tree line without pausing; after a good distance, Natalie slowed down and reached for my hand. When I came up beside her,she pointed to something ahead of us. "'My grove,' she whispered."
