With her heart in tatters after a relationship break-up, Rose Bennett trades her hometown of London for the sunny shores of Australia – but she arrives to find the Shingle Valley shrouded in winter.
As the weather improves, Rose starts to unlock the secrets of the Valley – from bonfire ceremonies and wine-making traditions to eccentric locals and their histories.
And despite herself, Rose starts to fall in love: with the valley, the wines, the two children she's helping to look after – and with handsome and brilliant Mark Cameron, owner of the troubled Kalkari Wines estate.
But what will happen when Mark's estranged wife, the tempestuous Isabella, returns? Will Rose find a future in the Shingle Valley, or will she be forced to leave?
