"Honest and touching. Caro Feely gives us the real thing, not only living the dream of making great wine in France but the stress and work required while raising a family and holding a marriage together. And at the same time, she has produced a readable, persuasive and informative book on organic wine-making, and why we need to heal our soil and change the way we farm." --Martin Walker, author, the Bruno Chief of Police Series
'Caro Feely is a force of nature! Her new book Glass Half Full tells the story of her family’s struggle to live, love and make healthy, natural wine on their small vineyard in France.

Even if you are not as concerned about organic farming as Caro is, initially, her account of its importance to our welfare will have you convinced by the last chapter. Go to Chateau Feely, taste the wine there, survey the landscape, and you will be doubly convinced!
Her books are charming and honest accounts of the struggles of life running a vineyard, especially in this book, as she tries to manage her emotions as she approaches menopause - very recognisable! Thoroughly recommended for any Francophiles or oenophiles! I plan to make it down to the Feely estates to do some serious buying & tasting!
Caro conveys brilliantly what it must be like to be a seemingly lone voice in an industry that needs to more fully embrace organic food policies and biodiversity. She does this in an informative style without preaching.
This is the most moving episode in Sean and Caro's journey - some laugh out loud moments and some genuine tear-jerking times, captured brilliantly.
Caro has an engaging, reflective and at times brutally self critical style - seemingly oppressed by French labour laws and local bureaucracy.
Will her true love for home, family and wine shine through whilst she comes to terms with her own inner hormonal demons?
Does love finally shine through?....
You'd better read the book!
