"Best book I've read in over 50 years...since A Tree Grows in Brooklyn." (LibraMystic) A Pulpwood Queens Book Club selection and Amazon Charts best-seller. How well do we really know each other? Red Mountain in Eastern Washington is home to a community of eccentrics. Otis Till, the area's visionary winemaker, has been known to howl at the moon - fully nude. Single mother Margot Pierce moved across the country to build an inn, but so far, all she does is binge on gelato, the Hallmark Channel, and fantasies of murdering her ex. High school senior Emilia Forester is the daughter of celebrity parents struggling to build her own life outside of their shadow. Brooks Baker is a man haunted by his past spent living on the streets as an orphan. Somehow, everyone lives together harmoniously, their lives intertwined like the vines in Red Mountain's beautiful and renowned vineyards. But in a place where everyone knows each other, secrets are like poison...and right now, Otis, Margot, Emilia, and Brooks all have something to hide. When their secrets come to light and dysfunction ignites, will their small mountain be stronger for it - or will lives be torn apart? Heartfelt, briskly paced, and wonderfully descriptive, Red Mountain is the story of four complicated people living in a beautiful landscape unlike anywhere else. Told from multiple perspectives and rich with vivid descriptions of wine life, this novel will transport you from the first moment to the last.
