"Emily Sue Harvey creates a strong Southern voice, vibrant characters, and a story that moves us from commonplace life to the brink of emotional destruction and back to salvation."
– Gwen Hunter, author of Ashes to Ashes

Unto These Hills is an unforgettable novel of love, scandal, family, and roots by one of the most emotionally authentic authors of our time. Taking us into the deep South's Tucapau Mill Hill, it introduces us to the unforgettable Sunny Acklin. Betrayed, abandoned, and violated, Sunny faces one seemingly insurmountable challenge after another. But she never loses her spirit or the memory of the love that once so richly illuminated her world. As years go by, Sunny does everything she can to make something of her life until at last an opportunity arises, one charged with promise...and undeniable risk.

From its vivid evocation of mill hill life to its pitch perfect rendering of the complexities of family and relationships, Unto These Hills is at once epic and intensely intimate. It is the richest novel yet from a writer who fluently speaks the language of our deepest feelings.

    What a pleasant surprise!

    I remember mill hills when I was growing up. We had a north and a south mill on either side of town. This was very realistic and brought back times of the past that are no more.
    I think I finished this in about 3 days. I loved it!

    I'm not sorry I read it

    This turned out to be a pretty good book. I had a bit of trouble getting in to it at the beginning, and then it turned in to quite a decent tale of lost love. The only real nerve-grater was when the author started talking about finding a matching donor for a liver, using living relatives. The time line was, I am pretty sure, in the days before they could use a living donor for a partial transplant. If the author is going to use that sort of thing as part of her plot line, she needs better experts. There was a fair amount of suspense, decant character development and good atmosphere.

    more from this reviewer

    It really draws you in!

    Just as Tony and Maria, Romeo and Juliet, Sunny and Daniel are star crossed lovers, destined to be together, but ripped apart. Serene faithful Sunny is slowly sapped of her joy and faith. Daniel is raised faithless, never trusting in anyone by a cold, faithless mother, abandoned too early. In a "Mill Hill Village" seemingly serene and joyful, undercurrents of deception, selfishness, and betrayal weave a choking web that conspires to steal the serenity and celebration out of so many lives. You will find yourself drawn into their world, rooting for these two, if anyone, to find the way home to each other.
