Complicated. That was the word her mother used when Georgia Ford returned home in search of the opposite. Home—the beloved Sonoma vineyard her father built from the ground up—had always been a place of simplicity: her parents, happily married for thirty years; her brothers, fiercely loyal, who would take a punch for their siblings; the early morning chores and the satisfaction of the setting sun over the western vines with a great glass of Pinot Noir. This was home, to Georgia.
Now, just a week before her scheduled wedding, Georgia returns to find the Ford family in turmoil. Secrets spill over as the last harvest nears, and Georgia realizes they may lose each other—and the vineyard they call home—forever. Eight Hundred Grapes is a story about the messy realities of family, the strength (and weaknesses) of romantic love, and the importance of finding a place to call home.
