Summary
The author of the engrossing international bestseller The Room on Rue Amelie returns with a moving story set amid the champagne vineyards of France during the darkest days of World War II.

• Champagne, 1940:
Ines has just married Michel, the owner of storied champagne house Maison Chauveau, when the Germans invade. As the danger mounts, Michel turns his back on his marriage to begin hiding munitions for the Résistance.

Ines fears they’ll be exposed, but for Celine, the French-Jewish wife of Chauveau’s chef de cave, the risk is even greater—rumors abound of Jews being shipped east to an unspeakable fate.

When Celine recklessly follows her heart in one desperate bid for happiness, and Ines makes a dangerous mistake with a Nazi collaborator, they risk the lives of those they love—and the vineyard that ties them together.

• New York, 2019:
Recently divorced, Liv Kent is at rock bottom when her feisty, eccentric French grandmother shows up unannounced, insisting on a trip to France. But the older woman has an ulterior motive—and a tragic, decades-old story to share.

When past and present finally collide, Liv finds herself on a road to salvation that leads right to the caves of the Maison Chauveau. (From the publisher.)
