Dove Review

**This review is contributed by Super Channel—a channel dedicated to providing integrity and accountability in today’s entertainment.

This is a beautiful story about friendship and warmth among acquaintances, acceptance of loss, embracing change and moving on, with a little bit of humor scattered throughout as Sara learns all about growing grapes, returning to her childhood roots, and finding a love she didn’t know existed. It’s inspiring and entertaining, and above all will leave the viewer with the assurance that “home is where the heart is” and that could be in the most unlikely of places!

Sara is a successful up and coming advertising exec. When her dad calls upon her to meet with the buyer of the family vineyard, she takes a few days away from her hectic city life and immediately runs into the handsome Gabe from the adjoining farm. Gabe lives with his brother’s family and helps with the grape harvest, but this year, an early frost destroyed half their crop and a good portion of their livelihood. Sara is concerned that the grapes are ready to pick and she knows nothing about farming. Little Mabel, Gabe’s niece, is outgoing and precocious and bravely makes a deal with Sara that her family will help harvest the grapes for half the crop. Mabel’s dad and Gabe are shocked but Sara is all for it and they form a team.

Gabe loves being back on the farm and away from the city. Sara is enjoying the outdoors but even more so, enjoying Gabe’s company and tells him he is very different from the guys she usually meets. And the Harvest Party! Her dad throws one every year and Sara thinks they should do just that one last time before the vineyard is sold.

When Ethan, the land developer puts on the pressure to seal the deal so his company can mow down the vineyard and build that big hotel complex, things take a very serious turn. Sara must decide where her heart really wants to live…and with whom. And what does her dad really want now that he is alone since her mom passed away? What about Caleb, Sara’s brother, who is anxious to settle down? Can Sara trust herself to make the right choices and give the right advice to ensure everyone’s happiness, including her own?

The Dove Take:

Leaving behind one life and starting another can be daunting and uncertain, but it’s not how we start things, but how we finish them that sets the path, and finding true love and committing to family will always prevail in the search for inner peace and happiness. Very entertaining for all audiences and Dove approved for all ages!
