Dreading the desk job that awaits her after high school, eighteen-year-old Vivian Goodyear embarks on an odyssey through Pre-World War II Paris where she supports herself as a figure model and has a fiery affair with a soon-to-be celebrated artist. Flash forward to modern day Manhattan where, inspired by Vivian’s courage, her grand-niece Samantha leaves her dead-end corporate job to work harvest at one of France’s most legendary wine domains.
There, between picking grapes in the vineyard and crushing them in the cellar, she gets lessons in the art of making wine and the art of making love. And when long-buried family secrets uproot her plans, a treasured memento from Aunt Vivian’s past could provide the key to Samantha’s future. Set against a backdrop of breathtaking beauty, comes an irresistible tale of two women-- generations apart, but united by strength of spirit, and the power of a beverage to make dreams come true.
