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.

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 .

After reading The Prodigal by this author, I just knew that I was in for a treat with The Vineyard. This novel really touches your soul and makes you think about what it would be like to reunite with your friends that you had before even if it had been a while. Would you have changed much as a group and what types of circumstances would each of you be facing? Ten years is a long time to go without seeing someone that you used to see every day during your high school years. I will be coming up on being graduated from high school for ten years in 2016. I could not even imagine what my friends lives are like now that I used to hang out with all the time. We have drifted over the years because priorities changed and we moved away from where we went to high school.

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.

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.
