Adam is a man who has everything: a great career, a happy marriage and visions of the family he always wanted. When the news of his wife's infertility leaves her heartbroken, he is helpless to save her from the despair she has wrapped herself in. Desperately trying to cope with the turn his life has taken, he makes a foolish decision that changes his life forever.

Marian, a kind, independent and lonely woman, has never stopped caring for Adam, her childhood love. After he marries her cousin, a girl she holds dear to her heart, she struggles to hide her true feelings while still being supportive of the relationship that seems meant to be. When a sudden turn of events leaves her bearing a shameful secret, she begins to find solace within the core of her mistakes.

For Delia, life without Adam is inconceivable. She is consumed with their marriage and the future she has planned for them. When she finds out she cannot get pregnant, her world begins to crumble. Caught in the middle of a complex love triangle, she battles with the depression her infertility has caused and comes face to face with her greatest fear.

On the Big White Oak is a poignant work that sucks the reader into the inner lives of flesh and blood characters that you almost feel breathe beside you. They will haunt you long afterward, almost like intimate friends that passed through a meaningful passage of your life, but moved on leaving you both somehow enriched and gutted. 

The story is enhanced with prose that amplifies the unrest and flows effortlessly winding the reader down it's river of love, deceit, sorrow, and new hope. Fresh with surprise and intrigue, it is a book you will pick up like the phone waiting to reconnect with those you care about. 

This was the most emotionally powerful book I have read since, a Thousand Splendid Suns.
