The Woman Who Left
Louise and Ben Hunter have a happy, loving marriage, marred only by their unfulfilled longing for a child. Working together on the family farm for Ben's father, Ronnie, they watch the seasons pass with joy, especially now Ben's lazy and lustful elder brother has left to set up his own business. But Ronnie's death brings Jacob home, sure he will profit from his family's grief - and hoping to find some way to steal Louise from his brother. When Jacob realises Ben will inherit the farm, he is furious, but determined to reverse his father's last wish. As his plot to seize Ben's livelihood takes shape, Jacob's selfish greed threatens to destroy everything the Hunters hold dear - their home and their family, their friends, their marriage and even their lives...
