A book that should definitely be serialised for TV as it has all the makings of a great TV drama . Touching on all aspects of human life and understanding with pertinence to current affairs today dealing in large part with spiritual philosophy v. the corruption of religious institutions , class and wealth inheritance and its implications for living with integrity. Oh yes there is sex too and a conveyance of what drives and inspires people in their quest for personal fulfillment. The book has an endearing charm which it captures through the eyes of its three female protagonists and a timelessness of place as with all great literature. There are many moments of epiphany which I think is what gives the book the quality of an engaging read drawing you in and ultimately getting you hooked .

Now I would like to forewarn you that this is not going to be a long review but that does not mean its a terrible read, what that means is it is such a good read with a lot for the reader to appreciate that I don't want to spoil it for you and reveal anything important.

First of all The Vineyard has a beautiful setting on the eastern coast of America, Martha's Vineyard to be exact and it is the location for a reunion of three women, all very different but they are coming together to spend the summer away from everything.

We have Dory who is from old money, Charlotte who is mourning the lost of her daughter and Turner a blogger who is recently divorced, all three have many more demons but at the start of this story one of them is not planning on making it past the first night.

The Vineyard explores the women's relationships but it also introduces us to other characters too that interweave with our three ladies and notably the elusive Fisherman, a man who seems to appear out of nowhere and he can do things, special things.

It is an atmospheric, gripping story with great female characters, faith is a recurring theme through this book and please have faith in me when I suggest that you read this to discover how the story reaches it conclusion.

Three different women come together at the Vineyard. Friends in college rejoining old times is what you might expect... but this is so far from what happens. Spirited Dory (still unmarried) plans a laid back summer. Charlotte is still reeling after the death of her child. Doubting her faith because her child was not baptized, therefore could not have a catholic burial. Determined to join and care for her child, she plans to use this trip to let the sea take her from this world. Then there is Turner, one with a secret that may tear at the fabric of her friendship with Dory. Another character, called the fisherman, is more than a man selling huge shrimp out of his truck. Seems like miracles happen around him. I can't begin to tell you all the interesting things that go on surrounding these three women. Colorful (and not so nice) characters are cleverly woven into the story, which will draw you in as well.

Who doesn’t love a reunion? Three women who had not seen each other since their college days ten years ago decide to meet for the summer at Dory Delano’s house located on beautiful Martha’s Vineyard. Only, one of the three, Charlotte Harris, arrived with the intention to take her own life. Someone known only as ‘the fisherman’ rescues her when she nearly succeeds with her plan.

Dory knows ‘the fisherman’ only in that he sells the biggest, best shrimp anyone has ever tasted. That is until the day he prophesied that she had breast cancer – something the tests missed. ‘The fisherman’ also caused her to be healed.

Turner Graham, a blogger, begins to post these miracles on her blog, making them more outlandish than they already are. Later when Dory’s mom plans a big party for 500, ‘the fisherman’ supplies shrimp that never seem to run out. Turner’s online rant was ‘The Feeding of the 5,000.’ The exaggerated posts go viral. Now, everyone is demanding to know more about ‘the fisherman.’ Since she’s claimed status as a Bennett & Donald author, she has obligated herself to fulfill a book deal.

The law is searching for ‘the fisherman’. He doesn’t have a permit for selling the shrimp and they are trying to shut him down. With a bad cop in the mix, things turn disastrous for both Turner and ‘the fisherman.’

This novel started out on a very sad note; it is very descriptive over Charlotte’s plan to end her life. But with the suicide attempt thwarted, the women build a new bond after ten years of separation. I do have a couple of issues. One is that I’ve always had a problem with novels in which sex is performed just for sex’ sake with little thought to love or even ‘like.’ Second, Dory has family money – a lot of it.

The Vineyard grabbed my attention as soon as I started reading and the first part of the book is still my favorite part of the story. Three college friends, Charlotte, Dory and Turner reunite at Dory's place in The Vineyard ten years after seeing other. Each with their own personal soul searching story that interlinks making the story flow together, keeping you well and truly intrigued, grasping you to read on.

As I mentioned I was drawn to one particular character in the story, Charlotte, who's sadness and despair weighed far too heavy for her that she could no longer carry on. What happens next will have your undivided attention and gives you the understanding of the true face of suicide, the author I felt did an amazing job with this.

The story is a lot more than the girls reunion, we also have an elusive spiritual figure known by locals as 'The Fisherman', to the girls as 'Enoch', who seems to have miraculous gifts of kindness and healing. This innocent, beautiful soul wants peace and beauty in the world and for the people in it and he will help the girls in their time of need in ways they certainly would not expect. Yet not everyone sees The Fisherman in good light.

There is some sexual content in the story so I would recommend this for adults.

Certainly a reminder that if we slowed down in our lives we would find the real person we want to be. A story of faith, real friendship and mystery after mystery that keeps you reading on to find out more.
