About the Book

Aching from the recent loss of a constant companion, Carina DiGratia Shephard longs to return to the shelter of her close-knit family. Her husband, Quillan, is bent on proving his devotion, and they begin the arduous journey to the home of her youth nestled in the vineyards of Sonoma, California. But their arrival at the DiGratia estate is not the joyous occasion they expected. Will a confrontation 
with the past pull them apart–or will the love they once embraced be reignited?

“Wow. What a quality book. She has the story, and then the layers of sub-stories. This book is beautifully woven. So many “real” characters and events blend into a tapestry that gets sewn into your heart.”
