Characters Ù PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ↠ Kristin Harmel The Winemaker's Wife Review ✓ 102 Kristin Harmel ↠ 2 Free download Hose they love and the champagne house that ties them togetherNew York 2019 Liv Kent has just lost everything when her eccentric French grandmother shows up unannounced insisting on a trip to France But the older woman has an ulterior motive and a tragic decades old story to share When past and present finally collide Liv finds herself on a road to salvation that leads right to the caves of the Maison Chauvea My thanks to NetGalley and Gallery Books for sending me an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review All opinions are my own and are not influenced by the publisher Okay Minority opinion alert This book currently has a very respectable 414 average on Goodreads so if the synopsis sounds like something you ll love by all means don t let my review turn you off of it But my honest reaction to this novel was mainly disappointment To start with the synopsis gave me an impression of a plot that was firmly rooted in the resistance movement in France Unfortunately this all felt very secondary in the novel and the main thrust of the historical portion of the plot hinges around marital affairs and discord In and of itself this could have been a decent focus for a story despite not being what I was expecting had the characters involved been a bit developed All that being said there were high stakes for this part of the book and good cause to be emotionally invested in the outcome The modern portion of the plot by contrast felt tacked on and lifeless Liv much like the characters in the earlier timeline feel uite underdeveloped and she was without the benefit of the tension in the HF portion to push the story along Liv is recently divorced and sad about it A very obvious romantic interest figure pops into the story when Liv s grandmother Edith takes her to France and their romance is delayed to a positively ridiculous degree by a misunderstanding and multiple characters failure to communicate very basic facts Harmel has uite a few novels under her belt but this one unfortunately read like a debut in my opinion The characters were all very shallow and were often unsympathetic when I believe the author did not intend for them to be The plot sometimes strained the limits of incredulity and the interesting aspects of the story routinely took a back seat to things like wine making and affairs The rating is comparable to her prior books however so I think it s safe to say that fans of her existing work will not be disappointed in this book as I was All that being said I was still prepared to rate this around three stars rather than two until I got to a particular scene that cast the entirety of the book in a bad light for me I will try to be as vague as possible to avoid giving away huge plot points but some spoilers are aheadview spoilerIn a moment of distress a character I ll call her person A confides in a person whom she knows to be a Nazi collaborator The secrets she gives away lead to the arrest of several people who then end up in a concentration camp Years later one of the characters who has managed to survive the camp I ll call her person B makes uite a point of saying that she doesn t blame the person who gave her up to the Nazis Her reasoning is essentially that Person A was careless but not cruel Again I d like to emphasize that Person A was well aware that her confidant was a Nazi collaborator I m all for victims finding forgiveness for those who have harmed them if it helps them find peace but Person B is not a real person with autonomy she is a character being fed lines by an author Forgiveness can be healing but there s something about the narrative that seems to frame this as the correct choice and that didn t sit well with me Perhaps I m entirely misreading the author s intentions but this was the impression I left the book with and it was enough to turn me off of a book I already had a rather lukewarm experience reading hide spoiler
