The Calling

The Calling

An edgy young couple win a timeshare vacation in Alpenhurst, Lake Tahoe's grand lodge. Soon they are drawn into a circle of neighbors who share a chilling secret, and an ungodly compulsion to make the couple their own.

Dana and Louis Ferrin take the lottery prize—a week's vacation in the Alpenhurst mansion. It's just what they need, an away-from-it-all escape. They have been feeling the pressures and demands of the city and their jobs, pressures that Dana has been struggling to handle. She has been having disturbing dreams.

The house is old and grand and luxurious, set deep in the woods above Lake Tahoe on the California-Nevada border. The nearest neighbors cannot be seen. A second honeymoon, they're thinking. Except that in the woods they are being watched. And plans are being made for the new arrivals.

It is as though they are destined to be there. They find themselves encompassed by a new circle of friends—all bound by a common calling.
