I am spending my summer traveling with BookSparks in this year’s #SRC2015. Right now, I am traveling with Eight Hundred Grapes by Laura Dave. Destination: Drink in Sonoma wine country.
Georgia Ford learned some important secrets while growing up on her family’s Sonoma vineyard. She knows everything from the number of grapes that it takes to make a bottle of wine to the secret ingredient in her mother’s lasagna. But, one week before her wedding, Georgia learns that her fiance is keeping a life-changing secret. Georgia returns home to the vineyard for comfort only to discover that her fiance was not the only one keeping a secret.
I love this book! I read it in two days! I could not put it down. The author tells the story so well, you can really visualize it in your head. I love Georgia and the dynamics between her and her older twin brothers. This is a story about love, family, and all of the things that surround our lives and make us who we are.
