Read full description of the books:
My first novel by the author of Chocolat and I have to say I enjoyed it far more than expected.
The story of Jay Mackintosh, a 37 years old writer, famous because of an only novel written fifteen years ago. Jay seems to have lost inspiration and faith in the magic of life, as if all these feelings had been spent in that successful novel.
The novel moves forward and backwards in time, and the reader is able to know young Jay, when he meets Joe, an eccentric old man who leaves a deep impression in lonely Jay, becoming his special friend and his secret hideaway.
Home brewed wine made by Joe takes unusual importance in the present time of the story, because it's only when Jay drinks it that he finds the courage to change what makes him unhappy. Guided by a kind of Joe's ghost, Jay leaves London and moves to a little rural village in France where he buys an abandoned farm and where he starts writing again, inspired by his mysterious neighbour, Marisa.
This is a book about haunted lives, unfinished stories and the chance to change your own life and atone for your past mistakes.
Magic, wine, faith or simply luck and coincidence. Choose your own explanation.
I'll stick to the magic and a bit of luck, as Jay says.
It's only a matter of not losing hope completely and let others surprise you, with one foot in the Earth and the other one suspended in the air, letting the wind blow where it has to.
Refreshing, heartening and uplifting reading. Great for dreamers and romantics.
