Sabin Willett

A soldier returns from Afghanistan hoping to reunite with his former lover in Willett's (Present Value, 2003) fiery reinterpretation of Wuthering Heights. The sleepy town of Hoosick Bridge, Vermont, may have forgotten Roy Murphy, but they will soon remember him. He is returning to face not only his reputation but also Emma Herrick, his teenage love whose family inhabits the grandest house in town, the Heights. A changed man, Roy will stop at nothing to obtain a piece of the Herricks' legacy. A gripping read.
