Publisher's Summary

When Natalie Seebring announces plans to marry within months of the death of her husband of fifty-eight years, her son and daughter are stunned. In the face of their disapproval, Natalie decides it's time to talk about the past and reveal the secrets she has kept for decades. She hires Olivia Jones to help write her memoir and invites her to spend the summer at the family vineyard. As summer deepens and the vineyard's crop ripens, Natalie's story unfolds and startles one family member after another, while Olivia's fantasy of finding a welcoming family remains as tenuous as the success of the season's crop.

Free spirit and matriarch learn from each other

A young, photo-restorer in Boston, a single mother of a dyslexic daughter, dreams about a family vineyard as she restorers the photos depicting the history of the vineyard. When she is about to lose her job, she grabs the chance for her and her daughter to spend the summer on the vineyard writing the memoir of its aging matriarch. The free-spirited, young, single mother and the older selfless matriarch are great foils for each other. Now widowed and almost 80, the matriarch decides to marry the childhood sweetheart she gave up years ago in order to marry a richer man whose capital could build the family vineyard. But her children deeply resent her decision.

- Grete "Love to listen to all genres of audiobooks while I pursue fibre crafts - spinning, dyeing, weaving and knitting. Favourite listens are romantic comedies and historical fiction."

Time just flew by!

I drove to Miami and back and for the first time I actually enjoyed the ride. I am hooked on Audible!
