I’ve had this book for awhile now and man, am I ever upset I didn’t read it sooner! It took me two days to finish and I absolutely loved it! I have not read a book by this author before, but this one made me a fan. The way she wove the World War II and French Resistance together with the winemaking was interesting and a learning experience. Add in some love and lust and you have a well rounded story that will appeal to a wide audience. This is another duel timeline book — I seem to be very attracted to them lately.
Reasons I liked this book:
Courageous and sincere characters.
I felt all the struggles on a deep level.
The writing took me straight to France.
Book Quote: “I learned far too late that life is simply about being good and decent to others. It’s as plain as that. But first, you must be good and decent to yourself. Find your own road. Find your own happiness. You must, my dear. You must, or you will wind up old and alone and full of regrets.”
Rating: 5 stars
