Overview

Thirteen years ago, Natalie lost a part of herself when her twin sister died. Will traveling back to the family winery finally put the memory to rest, or will it completely destroy her?

When Natalie Mitchell learns her beloved grandfather has had a heart attack, she's forced to return to their family-owned winery in Sonoma, something she never intended to do. She's avoided her grandparents' sprawling home and all its memories since the summer her sister died--the awful summer Natalie's nightmares began. But the winery is failing, and Natalie's father wants her to shut it down. As the majority shareholder, she has the power to do so.

And Natalie never says no to her father.

Tanner Collins, the vintner on Maoilios, is trying to salvage a bad season and put the Mitchell family's winery back in business. When Natalie Mitchell shows up, Tanner sees his future about to be crushed. Natalie intends to close the gates, unless he can convince her otherwise. But the Natalie he remembers from childhood is long gone, and he's not so sure he likes the woman she's become. Still, the haunted look she wears hints at secrets he wants to unearth. He soon discovers that on the night her sister died, the real Natalie died too. And Tanner must do whatever it takes to resurrect her.

But finding freedom from the past means facing it.

In her fifth novel, West (The Things We Knew) builds a complex, relatable story of faith, hope, and recovery in the aftermath of great tragedy. On the brink of having another emotional breakdown, Natalie Mitchell is bullied by her father (who is also her boss) into taking a leave of absence to check up on her ailing grandfather, Hal, as he recovers from a heart attack in Sonoma, Calif. But as comforting as Sonoma once was for Natalie, it also brings back terrible memories of the car accident that took the life of her sister 13 years before. Instructed by her father to find a way to close Hals struggling winery, Natalie defiantly plans to find a way to keep the business open. Upon arriving, she reconnects with her former crush Tanner Collins, the son of Hals ex-housekeeper, who is now the vintner at the winery. In the beginning, their relationship is strained and harsh, with Tanner unable to fully trust Natalie to fight to keep the winery open, and Natalie unable to get over bad memories of their teenage relationship. But the closer they get to each other, the harder it becomes for Natalie to avoid her guilt and run away from regretsa struggle that brings her into deeper spiritual faith. In this inspiring, emotionally astute story, West does an exquisite job depicting the complexity and messiness of overcoming trauma. Agent: Rachelle Gardner, Books & Such Literary (Mar.)
