Idols on the Hills

Cheryl Kenna

IDOLS ON THE HILLS Money, fame, beauty, influence, religion... They all carry a price. And that price becomes evident for all the players in this rich saga of families brought together by faith, by desire, by greed, and by power, In the first half of the twentieth century, there is never more of an opportunity to make dreams come true. And for the Newberrys, the McClintocks, and the Parkers, dreams do come true - in California, in London, in Scotland, and around the world. But dreams can become idols. And Charles Newberry, "the best of the best" of all the vintners in Northern California, learns that his idol requires nothing less than his soul. For Lowell Parker, the ambitious son of devoted missionaries, there is no offering too great to appease his idol, and for Katie McClintock, the first of the child stars of silent pictures in the 1920''s, the sacrifice proves to be too much for her to bear. These characters and more come together to tell a story woven in a tapestry of pride, self-indulgence, and pure survival. It is the tale of people who put idols ahead of all else. Some live to regret it.., and others don''t. Against the backdrop of Prohibition, The Great Depression, World War II, and the world of entertainment, Idols on the Hills depicts the human nature we can each find in all of us, some good, some not so good. But above all, each character is human, and each is recognizable.
