We are pleased to welcome award-winning novelist, Jane Porter. Jane will be discussing her new book, It's You . There is no charge for this event.
In the wake of a tragedy that tore her life down to the foundations, Dr. Alison McAdams has lost her way. So when she's summoned to Napa to care for her ailing father, she's not sure she has anything to offer him-- or anyone else.
What Ali finds in Northern California wine country is a gift-- an opportunity to rest, and distance from her painful memories. Most unexpectedly, she finds people who aren't afraid of her grief or desperate for her to hurry up and move on.
As Ali becomes part of her father's community, makes new friends of her own, and hears the stories of a generation who survived the Second World War, she begins to find hope again. In a quest to discover the truth about another woman's lost love, she sets off on a journey across oceans and deep into history. And, in making sense of that long-ago tragedy, Ali is able to put together the broken pieces of her heart and make new choices that are right for her.
