    I did enjoy this book, particularly the life of family winemakers in France, and in Napa This was interesting to hear of how Vinters run a farm, and the whole processes of crops, and all the elements that co inside with the techniqualites and minute details.I did however found the book as a whole a little too predictable at time, but found the character development done well and appealingPerhaps in all I just found it a bit too heavy sided on the romance part of the story as it progressed I am I did enjoy this book, particularly the life of family winemakers in France, and in Napa This was interesting to hear of how Vinters run a farm, and the whole processes of crops, and all the elements that co inside with the techniqualites and minute details.I did however found the book as a whole a little too predictable at time, but found the character development done well and appealingPerhaps in all I just found it a bit too heavy sided on the romance part of the story as it progressed I am not sure that I will continue on to the second book

    I used to refuse to read Historical Romance for a long time For many reasons I won t go into here today but let me tell you, lately, I have been picking up some great ones Vintner s Daughter was the perfect choice for me Though there are a few minor problems I had with the story that needs to be mentioned I found the story to be a bit overly predictable at times and I wanted some twist and turns to surprise me In addition, I felt a couple of scenarios to the plot could have been a bit stron I used to refuse to read Historical Romance for a long time For many reasons I won t go into here today but let me tell you, lately, I have been picking up some great ones Vintner s Daughter was the perfect choice for me Though there are a few minor problems I had with the story that needs to be mentioned I found the story to be a bit overly predictable at times and I wanted some twist and turns to surprise me In addition, I felt a couple of scenarios to the plot could have been a bit stronger and fleshed out .Though I love a strong female heroine s in a story They need to be flawed as well to make them believable There were at times I felt Sara was too perfect to be true Though I liked her a great deal and admired her courage and steadfastness One of the themes in the story was about the Suffragette movement and although in my opinion it played a back seat in the story, I found it an interesting addition and I would have liked it to play a stronger role I am hoping it will in the sequel We will see I guess Another theme weaved into the story was about the looming prohibition to come and how Sara and Philippe explores way around the survival of the wine industry is quite fascinating and intelligent I am looking forward to the outcome of that if it will be explored in the sequel I hope I could feel the attraction between Sara and Philippe coming from the pages as their relationship grew I liked how this was told and glad the author did not push their relationship too hard and too fast Harnisch s gives the right momentum and gives the reader time to enjoy the interaction between them I enjoyed the story and I felt there was some really strong character development I thought the supporting characters were marvelous Not only that, the story flowed well and I found myself thinking about the characters long after I put the book down There is also the fact that the main story takes place in Napa Valley and I always find that reading about Vintners and the life they lead are highly interesting Harnisch gives the reader a grasp of what the 1800 s was like for women and provides the reader with insight of the grape cultivation of wine This is a great debut and I am anxious to read, The California Wife I have rated this book three stars and received a copy from NetGalley for an honest review Stephanie M Hopkinswww,layeredpages.com

    Well, someone on the cover of this book compared it to Gone With The Wind and described it as a pleasure Were we reading the same book This is nowhere near GTTW Just another silly story of girl loves boy, troubles separate them, reunite them they live happily ever after I found the characters shallow, one dimensional and just too perfect to be believed Well, someone on the cover of this book compared it to Gone With The Wind and described it as a pleasure Were we reading the same book This is nowhere near GTTW Just another silly story of girl loves boy, troubles separate them, reunite them they live happily ever after I found the characters shallow, one dimensional and just too perfect to be believed

    It took me a couple of chapters to get into The Vintner s Daughter by Kristen Harnisch This is a historical that starts off in late 1800 s in France At seventeen, Sara Thibault is the youngest of two daughters, and she lives in her family s vineyard Her father runs the family business and when he finds himself desperate to sell or go bankrupt, he leaves the vineyard with cargo for sale but he dies in a mudslide He leaves his wife and two daughters in debt The eldest daughter, Lydia then mar It took me a couple of chapters to get into The Vintner s Daughter by Kristen Harnisch This is a historical that starts off in late 1800 s in France At seventeen, Sara Thibault is the youngest of two daughters, and she lives in her family s vineyard Her father runs the family business and when he finds himself desperate to sell or go bankrupt, he leaves the vineyard with cargo for sale but he dies in a mudslide He leaves his wife and two daughters in debt The eldest daughter, Lydia then marries for money but finds herself in an abusive relationship.The two sisters end up running off to America to start anew after a tragic event occurs that threatens everything Involved in the storyline is Philippe Lemieux, who is looking to avenge his brothers untimely death and Marie Chevreau, a midwife who befriends the sisters By a twist of fate, Philippe and Sara s paths cross and she fears this man could be the key to her undoing.After the slow start, the story picked up its pace.Sarah was strong from the start and even though she was the younger sister, she was the wiser one The story takes us through France, New York and California as Sara struggles to make a living Although most women in her predicament find worked as maids or seamstresses, in her heart she was a vintner s daughter and only wanted to continue her father s legacy.The story takes some complicated twists and turns and I wanted to know what would become of Sara I found it interesting reading about how she came to America, changed her name and tried to find work in a place where she was left to fend for herself It made me think of the struggles people go through when coming to this country, especially back in those days I also enjoyed reading the details about wine making and the vineyards.Marie Chevreau was another character who I found intriguing, she is a midwife who dreams of becoming a doctor The sights she sees in the story are particularly sad and difficult to imagine Old school midwifery has always interested me and I like seeing this topic in historicals especially Prohibition and women s suffrage are also woven into the plot.I enjoyed this one overall The Vintner s Daughter is first in a series and I am interested in seeing where the author takes these characters next.disclaimer This review is my honest opinion I did not receive any type of compensation for reading and reviewing this book While I receive free books from publishers and authors, such as this one, I am under no obligation to write a positive review I received a free review copy of The Vintner s Daughter by Kristen Harnisch via caitlinhamiltonmarketing.com

    A story of love and heartbreak, unfathomable loss and blazing hope I especially loved Sara s character, her mix of na vet and sheer stubbornness, her passion and devotion And of course, Philippe is pretty dreamy Can t wait to read the sequel

    It s not going to change your life, but it was a sweet enough story and a nice change from some heavier HF.The appearance of a suffragist story element was a nice surprise.
