To her family, Natalie Seebring is a woman who prizes appearances. So when she announces plans to marry a vineyard employee mere months after the death of her husband of fifty-eight years, her son and daughter are stunned. Faced with their disapproval, Natalie decides to write a memoir.

Olivia Jones lives vicariously through the old photographs she restores. She and her daughter Tess have no one, so they cling to the fantasy that a big, happy family is out there somewhere. When Natalie hires Olivia to help with her memoir, a summer at Natalie’s beautiful vineyard by the sea seems the perfect opportunity to live out that fantasy.

But all is not as it seems at the vineyard in Rhode Island—Natalie is not quite the mothering type. Simon Burke, who runs the vineyard’s day-to-day operation, sees in Olivia and Tess an unwelcome reminder of the wife and daughter he tragically lost.

The Vineyard is a fascinating story of two women, a generation apart, each of whose dream becomes bound with the other.

    " Wasn't sure at first if I'd like this book...seemed like it could be a bit stuffy after just reading the inside cover, but that quickly changed as I got past the first 10 pages. Very touching story about long lost loved, sacrifice and dedication. I loved the historical aspect as Natalie told about her love story with Carl through the Depression and WWII. "
