As a boy, writer Jay Mackintosh spent three golden summers in the ramshackle home of Jackapple Joe Cox in the tiny English town of Kirby Monckton, finding solace in his simple wisdom, stories of adventure, and his Specials, magical homebrewed wines. It was all lost, though, when Joe disappeared without warning one fall. Years later, Jay's life is stalled. He hasn't written anything since Jackapple Joe, his artistic zenith, was published ten years ago. In an attempt to recapture the magic, he purchases a farmhouse in the French village of Lansquenet, sight unseen, and packs the last bottles of Joe's Specials.

As with many of Harris's books this one took a while to grab me but once it did I didn't want to put it down. If you like wine and France you'll be hooked as well.

Delicious. It's been a while since I read this, but I can still taste the wine. :) Lovely descriptive language, a novel that plays with your senses.
