Book Review - Seasons Among the Vines

Paula Moulton decides she’s had enough of the city, and makes a decision that completely changes the way she and her family live. She paints vivid pictures through her descriptions of California wine country and the relationships she develops – with the people and the land.

While her husband works 80 hour weeks, Paula and her children learn to live with Mother Nature, not fight her. Through trial and error, she discovers what farming methods work for her, while cultivating her vineyard. Paula finds herself becoming caught up in the ebb and flow of the seasons, and how important each is, if she hopes to have a productive crop.

This book is vaguely reminiscent of Under the Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes. It’s anecdotal as well as educational. You’ll find information and instruction about grape growing and wine making. It’s a beautiful book, one you’ll find yourself sharing with your friends. (October 2003, 250 pp, $16.95)
