Blood Red Wine

(1981)
A novel by

 
A Classic New York Times Bestseller now available for Kindle!

From a Sicilian village across the American continent to the fertile California valleys...

The Orsinis--Fleeing a brutal vendetta, Raphael came from Sicily to marry the beautiful Angelica, to father the children who would play out passions born half a century before and half a world away, to labor in the vineyards that would become the fabulous Orsini Winery.

Sweeping from the end of World War I through the Depression to the turbulent sixties, here is the unforgettable multigenerational saga of a magnificent family--men and women ablaze with life, destined to know wrenching tragedy and soaring triumph, to hunger with desire and thirst for vengeance as their cup flowed with... Blood Red Wine.

:: Top Rave Reviews for BRW ::

"... the writing in "Wine" is a notch above standard saga; and the story, chronicling the rise and fall of a California winery, has a strong Steinbeckian ring."
Los Angeles Times, August 9, 1981

"Three generations live out their lives in this "Godfather-type" saga, and the descendants of the Gianini family feud with the descendants of the Orsinis family all the way through... The sudden end to this continuing hatred and violence is a complete surprise, and will leave the reader wondering."
Fort Worth Star Telegram, August 9, 1981

"... the author has the ability to move the men and women who make up the exciting cast into tense drama that unfolds in California. Just the kind of book for vacation pleasure whether at home or on the way to faraway places."
Jack L. McDonald, Phoenix Sun "Book Views"
