An excellent, inspiring read,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Ripening Sun: One Woman and the Creation of a Vineyard (Hardcover)
This is a fantastic read for anyone who hopes to get away from the daily grind and instead do something useful with their life... Ms Atkinson is tremendously inspiring and writes this book with a minimum of sentimentality. I've read most of this in one go, and was amazed to learn what went into wine-making (a lot more than I thought) - but my one criticism of the book is that you don't really get to know the author terribly well as she keeps a large part of herself entirely private. Too bad, as I would have liked to know more about what she was feeling. Otherwise, a highly recommended book.
