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.

Thank to Jean Book Nerd Tours for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review
Three women head together to reunite after ten years on an island, Martha’s Vineyard. Dory has her wealth and family heritage to worry about upholding. She struggles with it and wants nothing more but a life of her own that she can say that she created, but she sees no way out of the life that has been laid out before her. Charlotte lost her daughter and though traumatic wants to commit suicide while taking her daughter’s ashes out into the ocean. She wants peace, and I felt for her. I don’t condone suicide at all but reaching a low point has people have notions that they wouldn’t normally. The sadness is just too much for her. Turner has a blog and that is her life goal as of late. She really has no true idea who she really is and needs to find herself and her path that she wants from life. All three of these women are so different, yet they mold together in such a way that you would think that it had not been ten years since they had last been together.
Charlotte is saved from committing suicide by a mysterious fisherman. Turner takes the chance to blog about this fisherman that saved her friend and the miracles that went along with it. All three women change when they are together on that island. The fisherman makes them think about the journey that they are each on and that there is always something out there to live for. The exploration of the soul parts of the book were my favorite part. We each need a little bit of that inspiration and cause to live in our lives. This book was excellent and a real page turner. I wanted to know more about these three ladies and to go with them on their journey of finding self worth and discovery. Bravo for yet another great novel from Michael Hurley!
I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.
