I just finished reading a short novella Journey of the Heart written by Stephanie Burkhart.
I loved this charming and romantic story set in the Sonoma County, post WWII. I love the cover it really reflects the story. loved her two main characters Rachel and James, for the touch of tenderness that Ms. Burkhart gave them.
In short, Rachel is the heir of a Californian winery and needs help. She decides to hire a salesman named James, a war veteran. I loved this story, it’s sweet and found it a small interlude to enjoy. I recommend this novella!
