In The Vineyard, New York Times bestselling author Barbara Delinsky (Lake News, Coast Road, Three Wishes) has written her most complex and emotionally rewarding novel -- a story of two women, a generation apart, each of whose dream becomes bound with the other's.When Natalie Seebring announces only months after the death of her husband of fifty-eight years that she plans to marry a vineyard employee, her children are stunned and upset. In an effort to help them to understand, she decides to write a memoir. To assist her, she hires Olivia Jones, a young woman who yearns for a family of her own.Hoping to find in Natalie an idealized surrogate mother for herself -- and a grandmother figure for her young daughter -- Olivia, an inveterate dreamers, is instead caught up in a Seebring family crisis while trying to come to terms with her own past.The lives of these two women of different generations, parallel in so many ways, provide, The Vineyard with a powerful and moving story as the fantasy of an idealized life, complete with perfect romance, crashes headlong into reality.
