France, wine, WWII, present day, and love - all of this wrapped into one amazing, difficult-to-put-down read.
We meet Inez, Celine, Michel, Thor, Liv, and Liv's French grandmother, Edith, as the story moves back and forth in time.
find out about the lives of the winemakers during the war and a secret
that grandmother has kept for many years as well as a connection that
the vineyards, a restaurant, and the characters have to both time
periods and to their lives.
Grandmother Edith was my favorite character…mysterious and stubborn all rolled into one.
Liv was likable as well.
Inez, Celine, Michel, and Thor were interesting, and their wine tunnels were fascinating.
learn more of the war, the resistance, the French people involved in
the resistance, and how the danger of making one simple mistake could alter the
safety of many people.
THE WINEMAKER’S WIFE is another
marvelous, intriguing read about the resiliency and determination of the
French people and the entire European population.
of us who were not living during this time, do not have any idea of the
horrors and hardships endured by the European people.
weaved a beautiful tale filled with authentic characters and a story
line that kept me turning the pages to learn more as well as cry with the characters.
Absolutely LOVED this book. Do not miss reading this book. 5/5
This book was given to me as an ARC by the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
