Eight Hundred Grapes

Eight hundred grapes

This novel is now my favorite of the year. The exquisite writing, the blend of viniculture and families, and the story of a family in the grips of turmoil are a perfect blend in this excellent offering from Laura Dave.

Georgia flees her Los Angeles home, job, and fiancé seeking solace and comfort in her childhood home in Sonoma County. She finds not peace but twisting tales of infidelity, secrets and heartbreak amid the grapevines and beauty of the countryside. Instead, she encounters confusion rather than comprehension. Georgia strives to correct all the problems in her family while failing to face her own looming decisions.
