Like a glass of good pinot noir, Barbara Delinsky's The Vineyard is best enjoyed slowly. The Vineyard follows the triumphs and tragedies of the Seebrings, a wealthy family of vintners in Rhode Island. The story begins when recently widowed, 76-year-old Natalie Seebring announces her scandalous engagement to none other than the vineyard manager, Carl, whose social standing is, needless to say, several notches beneath the Seebrings'. Natalie's children, Susanne and Greg, are furious with their mother for marrying the help, and only six months after their father's death.

Besides her remarriage, Natalie is working on a family history project, one she hopes will explain all the love and loss she has endured before reaching happiness at long last. She recruits Olivia Jones to help with the project, and Olivia and her daughter Tess move out to the vineyard for the summer. Tension builds with the summer heat as the wedding approaches. To make matters worse, Carl's son Simon, the new vineyard manager, is coldly resentful of Olivia and Tess, who remind him of the wife and daughter he has lost. But amidst all this, Natalie Seebring's long-buried past is slowly revealed, and like a summer storm, the truth blows through the vineyard, leaving everything different in its wake.

Barbara Delinsky says she was influenced by Tom Brokaw's The Greatest Generation in writing The Vineyard, and Natalie Seebring is a fine tribute to the strong, silent Americans who made so many sacrifices during World War II. Keep a hankie close by when reading this one. Family tragedy, unlikely romance, and old wrongs finally made right will have you laughing and crying. --Francine McBride

From Booklist

Delinsky is an expert at portraying strong women characters who come to realize how much can be learned from the older generation. Seventy-six-year-old Natalie Seebring, owner of a Rhode Island vineyard, is remarrying after being widowed for only six months. Her children are upset by her decision, so she decides to write a book about her life so they can understand what she has been unable to tell them directly. She hires Olivia Jones, the woman who has been restoring her photographs, as an assistant writer, even though the two women have never met. Olivia, it turns out, has been daydreaming about securing a place in this picture-perfect family for herself and her dyslexic daughter, and the women form an immediate rapport. As Natalie's life story unfolds, so does the seasonal battle between the land, stormy weather, and the vulnerable grapes, a struggle for survival that has always been a motivating force in Natalie's life. She even gave up her first love for the vineyard and now will not sacrifice their love again. Olivia is also battling demons from the past as she searches for her mother, who deserted her. High drama, beautiful scenery, and resilient yet sensitive characters make this a must for all Delinsky fans and a perfect introduction to her work for new readers. Patty Engelmann

5.0 von 5 Sternen anther winner from Barbara Delinsky 1. Juli 2000
Von Jo-Anna

I could not put this book down. The story is a real portrait of what families can become without nourishment. The young girl character and her problem touched the teacher in me. The mother and tutor showed great love and patience to this struggling little girl. I also loved the grace and dignity of Natalie who wasn't afraid to work hard and tell the truth about her role in the history of the vineyard. The characters and their interactions made melaugh and cry. As usually Barbara Delinsky told a wonderful tale.

5.0 von 5 Sternen My favorite storyteller pens another winner 12. Juni 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Olivia Jones accompanied by her nine-year old troubled daughter Tess agrees to write the memoirs of Natalie Seebring, owner of the Asquoniet Vineyard and Winery in Rhode Island. Natalie stuns her adult children, Susanne and Greg when she announces her intention to marry Carl Burke, the long-term manager of the winery although their beloved father has been dead only six months.

Iit is a struggle for her to talk about her feelings, Natalie hires Olivia to help her tell the truth to her children in order to gain their blessing for her wedding. Olivia is unaware that she is entering a major family feud. However, she quickly comes to love her employer, who makes her and her daughter feel like part of an extended family. Carl's son Simon makes Olivia want to believe in fairy tales, but she fears that he will desert her like everyone else in her life has done. Olivia, the Seebrings, and the Burkes have many personal obstacles to overcome if they are to learn what true loving means.

Because of the width of the talent, no one can predict what the next Barbara Delinsky book will be especially since the great author never repeats herself. Her novels are always different as writing style and the characters are unique to one tale only. THE VINEYARD is Barbara Delinsky at her best, delivering a first class family drama filled with a heartwarming and gut-wrenching story line. The passion and uncertainty of caring for another person and the vineyard, which seems at times like a person, feels true to life in what is certain to be the writer's latest bestseller.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Vineyard 30. Juni 2000
Von Ange

She has done it again! What a wonderful book. I, like lots of others hated to see this book end. I began to feel like their family was part of my family. I also found the information about the vineyards very compelling and interesting. I would like to know more about it.

One problem I've had when reading a book by Barbara Delinsky is that the end comes too quickly and I'm left waiting anxiously for the next new title. In the meantime, though, any reader will find as I have, that Ms. Delinsky's books are wonderful adventures and her newest book,The Vineyard, is no exception. In my opinion, it may very well be one of Ms. Delisnky's very best books.
As you read this book find out as I did that The Vineyard is filled with memorable characters and a unique place, Rhode Island wine country. And then savor this book as you would any fine wine. For within the book's pages, Ms. Delinsky introduces us to two characters, Natalie Seebring and Olivia Jones, whom we will come to know and remember. These women, from different lifestyles and years apart chronologically, will not only come to learn from one another but will also become bound to one another.
Thank you Ms. Delinsky for this wonderful read and please don't make me wait too long for your next book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen It was good - not great, but good. 28. Juli 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Okay, I have yet to read another Barbara Delinsky book, so I only have other authors' writings to compare to. The overall story was easy to read, entertaining and realistic - the characters were likable, and the premise was generally believable. It just seemed to - generic - for me, I guess. No outstanding characters - Olivia, the main, was the typical single mother hurt by men and determined to make it on her own. Natalie was the matriarch whose work went unacknowledged for most of her life. I felt like I had met all of these people before, but maybe that was the idea. The climax of the story was great, and while I expected it to happen (I won't give anything away, I promise!) - it was done with finesse. Overall, I would like to read another Barbara Delinsky book, if only to compare notes.
