1956: When Caterina Rosetta inherits a cottage in the countryside of Italy from a grandmother she’s never known, and seizes the chance to start a new life for herself and her child. But the past is not so easily outrun, and she discovers a long-buried family secret — a secret so devastating, it threatens the future of everything her mother has worked for. Many years before, her mother’s hard-won dreams of staking her family’s claim in the vineyards of California came to fruition; but as an old murder in Italy comes to light, and Caterina uncovers a tragic secret that may destroy the man she loves, she realizes her happiness will depend on revealing the truth of her mother’s buried past.
