The Winemaker's Secret

By Neil A White

Arthur Coventry returns home from WWII, and the killing fields of France, to his California farm. Upon his return, he plants the vine shoots he's carefully nurtured and painstakingly begins a winery to commemorate his fallen brothers-in-arms. Seventy years later, his grandson, Grant, returns to finalize his grandfather’s estate. It was Arthur’s final wish to sell the winery, and for Grant to have but one possession - a journal. As Grant nears completion of Arthur's wartime correspondence, the razing of the farmhouse reveals a decades-old family secret.
