ONE FAMILY
THREE GENERATIONS
SOME SECRETS NEVER DIE . . .

Elise would do anything to inherit Sainte Madeleine, the vineyard that’s been home to the Salignacs for generations. Only Laurent Senard, a distant cousin, is a rival for her heart – yet when a family rift sends her on a new and dangerous path, she risks losing them both . . .

Having read all of Tilly Bagshawe's previous novel, its been a while since she released new work and I couldn't wait to get stuck into her novel. Set in France on a vineyard called Sainte Madeleine, the story opens with a family comprising of Therese, Louis (parents) and their three children Didier, Alexandre and Elise. As the years progress, the profitability of the vineyard is tumultuous as is the relationship between Therese and Louis. During Christmas time, their cousins Laurent and Thierry visit the vineyard and Elise falls head over heels with his distant cousin Laurent. The love story plays out over many years, throughout the war, marriages, deaths and births. It mainly concentrates on Elise and Alex but also features Alex. It is perfect escapism and I truly enjoyed reading it,
