Los Angeles, the 110 during peak morning rush hour: an endless sea of commuters. But this traffic jam is different-a runner is dodging and weaving between the cars at an astonishing clip-and it sets the course for a handful of Angelenos, all of whom are in desperate need of a change.

There’s Ren, just out of juvie, who travels to LA in search of his mother. There’s Owen and James, teenage twins who live in a desert commune, where their father, Patrick, a self-proclaimed healer, holds a powerful sway over his disciples. There’s Britt, harboring secrets of her own, who shows up at the commune and captures Patrick’s attention. There’s Tony, a bored and unhappy lawyer who is inspired by the runner. And there’s Blake, a violent drifter hiding in the desert, whose path collides with Patrick’s in a shocking way.

Whether running away from their past, or looking to reclaim their future, these characters, imbued with endless amounts of empathy and wisdom, will do anything for a semblance of peace.

Wonder Valley is a sweeping portrait of angst, violence, heartache, and yearning-a masterpiece by a writer on the rise.
