Narrator Saskia Maarleveld's way with French, American, and German accents adds to the enjoyment of Ann Mah's audiobook, set among France's Burgundy vineyards. Surprises await Kate, a Californian studying for the Master of Wine exam, when she visits her ancestral French home. While she expected to help with the grape harvest, she also meets a former love and discovers evidence of an unknown relative lost during WWII. Why does no one know who the woman was? Why does the older generation never discuss the war? Maarleveld channels everyone from French children and adults to Gestapo agents and present-day Americans as she colors Mah's engaging mystery-history-romance. And she paces the wine-making and vineyard details to keep listeners involved. A pleasure for imbibers and non-drinkers alike. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2018]
