About the Book

A savage rape on hallowed ground. Secrets buried for decades by the town’s most influential family.

Now Ourania D’Andre will learn the Great Oak’s secrets as construction begins at the Fagan mansion. She can’t afford to turn down a job that promises to stir up the long-buried guilt—and the passion—she shares with powerful Troy Fagan.

She’s already juggling the most important job of her career with her new responsibilities as a foster mother for young Walt and Emma Korchek. And there’s a hard, older man on the construction crew with eyes void of emotion—cold and killing. The secrets of his brutal past will pose a grave threat to the children in her care. Will she find the courage to face him?

About the Author

Christine Nolfi on Indie Author News
Some writers are gifted with an unusual life and Christine Nolfi is one of those. She's lived in Ohio, Virginia, California, Utah and now South Carolina. In college she was featured on the front page of the Houston Post for a lark that erased all her debt.

Christine Nolfi met her four adopted children for the first time in the sweltering heat of the tropics. She helped build several companies and was lucky enough to earn a living doing what she loves best -writing- in a PR firm she owned.

In 2004 she made the wisest and most irrational decision of her life--she began writing fiction full-time. All those years of hard work pay off daily in sweet notes and comments by readers. She cherishes reader's support and loves chatting with readers.

In 2011 Christine Nolfi released her debut novel. Treasure Me is lighter fiction, the first book in a series about the fictional town of Liberty, Ohio. The Tree of Everlasting Knowledge is a bit of a departure—darker, more suspenseful.
