Publisher Description

From Chris Orcutt, critically acclaimed author of the Dakota Stevens Mystery Series, comes a rich and descriptive modern novel about a rarefied Upstate New York town where "...readers can eavesdrop on the lives of the uber-rich and those who cater to them."* An IndieReader Best Book of 2014.


Welcome to Wellington, New York, where the hills and the seemingly quaint village conceal lives of love, lust, adultery, tragedy and small wars.


A trophy wife undergoes a shocking transformation. A medical doctor attracts his own destruction. A local bachelor steals a dog and has an epiphany. A town Casanova goes on a personal odyssey to make amends. And a Manhattan book editor reveals what it's like to be a first-time visitor to this rarefied world of wealth, horses and equestriennes.


High Thread-Count Dirty Laundry...


To this exquisitely written novel, Chris Orcutt brings his meticulous craft and his talent for writing in multifarious voices and styles, all while exposing a world of massive estates, rolling green hills, hilltoppers, townies, celebrities, hopes, dreams, sex, and the fleeting promises of love...


"Welcome to Wellington, New York, where, in this loose novel, readers can eavesdrop on the lives of the uber-rich and those who cater to them. Think of a very, very upscale Winesburg, Ohio--with no inhabitant nearly so innocent as young George Willard. Or think John Cheever, for this is certainly Cheever country." - *Kirkus Reviews
