  • Beautiful Historical Story

    A beautifully written novel by Renee Ryan that kept me enthralled throughout the whole book! I couldn't get enough of Gabrielle, Helene and Josephine. These 3 women couldn't be more different but together, they are widows who will hold on to the family vineyards with everything that is in them, even under Nazi rule. They will be tested to their limits and one will have to cross a line she never thought she'd have to cross but she will to save her family. Then there is the youngest daughter, Paulette, will aggravate you to no end! She is spoiled and selfish but never quite grasps the serious situation of the Nazi occupation. I knew that the Nazi's occupied France, of course, and that they took over peoples' homes but to read about what happened on a day to day basis, it was amazing what the French went through. The widows not only lived with the indignities, they also did everything they could to protect some of their champagne which the Nazi's just took whenever they wanted. There is so much to love in this book! I wish every teenager would read this book and see what happened during this time. It is based on true events. A fabulous book!

  • The Wolf

    The vineyards of Champagne create the best champagne around any of the vineyards. Those vineyards are tended by Gabrielle and her grandmother Josephine. Her mother Helene and her sister Paulette also live at Champagne. When the war comes the Nazi's move into their home and the family becomes their servants. The Nazi's take their champagne, but not before Gabrielle hides the best of it where they cannot find it. When the Nazi officer that has been living in their home disappears a Gestapo agent is set to arrest Helene. Paulette tells a secret that almost costs all of them their lives, however the Gestapo agent is not as he appears.. This is a story of resistance, betrayal, love and heartbreak. It is action packed and keeps you guessing. I loved all the characters, but especially that of Gabrielle for her corageous and her undying faith. Josephine's character was also good, she cared so much for all her family and fought valiantly to keep everyone safe even though she was facing health challenges of old age. I was really interested in the history of how the grapes were grown and how champagne was made by blending different tastes. I thought that part added so much to the story. This was a great read and I would recommend it. Thanks to Renee Ryan, Harlequin, and NetGalley for allowing me to read a copy for my honest review.

  • Enjoyed this book

    Historical fiction is my favorite genre. I think this author has the talent to evolve from a romance writer into more sophisticated historical novels and I hope she will consider it!
