Earlier this year, I raved about Kristen Harnisch’s The Vintner’s Daughter.
Loire Valley, 1895. When seventeen-year-old Sara Thibault’s father is killed in a mudslide, her mother sells their vineyard to a rival family, whose eldest son marries Sara’s sister, Lydia. But a violent tragedy compels Sara and her sister to flee to New York, forcing Sara to put aside her dream to follow in her father’s footsteps as a master winemaker.
Meanwhile, Philippe Lemieux has arrived in California with the ambition of owning the largest vineyard in Napa by 1900. When he receives word of his brother’s death in France, he resolves to bring the killer to justice.
I said in my review, “Harnisch has crafted a emotional journey of a young woman coming into her own in the modern world and learning to forgive and be forgiven. Stunning debut.”
I am excited to share with you that there will be a sequel to the book and to celebrate, I’ve got one audio download from Blackstone Audio to give away to one winner.
