A poor boy, adopted into a prosperous family, soon falls in love with his foster sister. When the family patriarch dies, the young man faces hatred and cruelty from the surviving members. He escapes into exile, only to return years later to extract revenge and reclaim the love that was stolen from him. This classic plot was the foundation of Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights and other great Gothic works by Ann Radcliffe, Wilkie Collins and Charles Dickens. Sunny Valley transports the tale to a small ski town in California’s Sierra Nevada mountains, where a four-year drought has driven the locals to desperation. Sunny Valley is a Gothic thriller in modern setting, with all the elements of a spin-tingling read: a menacing landscape, passions that transcend the grave, and an ancient bloody secret.
