Other reviewers have revealed more of the story. I will not do that. Just know that you will not be disappointed. Julianne MacLean has done it again. I received an arc copy and I highly recommend this book.
I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.
Thirty years earlier there had been love and tragedy. Lillian had married Freddie five years earlier because she had been pregnant and then she lost the baby. He was writing a novel and promised the minute he wrote, "The End." They would get pregnant. It was to take place in Tuscany so she suggested they go there for the summer. She could find a job and he could write. So they did. Her life changed. She loved the winery and the vineyards and the owner. There was a brief affair but she felt so guilty: a bout cheating on Freddie and about loving Anton. She was a strong character who knew what was right and did it. Fred was the one: the weak one, who held on, thinking only of himself, before the accident and after. But they had a beautiful daughter, Kate. One they both loved with their whole hearts. He had been in that chair for over two years. The doctors had said it would only be a couple of years before an infection of some sort took him. They all: Lillian, Fred, Anton, and Kate, lived this lie for over thirty years. Now, both Lillian and Anton were dead. And Kate knew the truth. She also had a great many decisions to make, decisions that would affect her father her sibling, the employees of the vineyard. She was devastated. This book had me at the edge of tears, nose stuffed up for the last half of it. The beginning was hard because I was waiting for bad things to happen. Then they had and I could move on. Gut-wrenching, soul-stealing. What a beautiful book!
