Overview
With the Hungarian vineyard as the backdrop to this historic fiction, this novel follows my family members who lived through times of nobility, war, famine, totalitarianism, and love. Starting from the Tarcal vineyards of Hungary at the turn of the twentieth century, multiple generations of the Kerekes, Csendes, and Kovesi clan undergo harrowing challenges only to see their world turned upside down. Yet love, family, and great wine provide endurance for them through their struggles. The events recounted here are true, in the sense that they collectively portray an accurate account of significant events in my family's history.
