It took me a while to get round to reading Blackberry Wine by Joanne Harris. In fact I remember starting it once and it not grabbing me straight away. I have enjoyed the other Joanne Harris books that I have read, but I must say that I really loved Blackberry Wine when I read it recently.
On reflection it was the combination of having moved to another country myself and the experiences gained writing our Almerimar Life Blog but I found myself turning the pages with either a smile or a sense of don’t do that!.
The story was written very well, had a great backstory and the concept of the wines worked very well. As for the ending ….. well it was part predictable and part surprising, which makes it just about the perfect ending.
Really enjoyed this book.
