In this gripping, international best-selling sequel to The Vintner's Daughter and The California Wife, four related families confront the turmoil of the First World War, a deadly influenza epidemic and a looming American prohibition.
France, 1918. Vintner Luc Lemieux enters the fight as his fellow Americans join forces with the Allies. At his Vouvray vineyard, he leaves behind his grandparents and two parentless siblings rendered homeless by the advancing German troops. Meanwhile, his sister Adeline, serving as a surgical nurse on the front, makes the fateful decision to save an injured German medic who is struggling to reclaim his humanity during one of the deadliest wars in history.
Back in America, Sara and Phillippe Lemieux battle to save their Napa vineyard and world-renown wines from the blight of prohibition while their daughter Pippa Lemieux strives for independence as a devastating secret surrounding her birth is revealed.
From the pristine vineyards of California to the war-ravaged battlefields of France, from an army hospital in Juilly to the bustling streets of Manhattan as the city mobilizes for war, The Vintner's Legacy is a vividly crafted testament to hope and the resilience of the human spirit, as experienced by four families whose daring and sacrifice will shape generations to come.
