How does getting pummeled in a boxing ring lead a young man from a desk job in New York City to a vineyard in rural South America? Join the “gringo” on a ride through wine country and a trip through the towering Andes Mountains to find out. Meet his coworkers, many of whom are struggling to move their own lives forward. Find out if Sonia, a former teenage runaway, can make her way back to her family and to respectability; If Mauricio, a privileged medical student with a wild streak, can shake off his overbearing father to be with the girl he loves; If Oscar, a temperamental know-it-all, can find a way to connect with someone, anyone; If Jessi, a bubbly sidekick, can finally take a leap to jumpstart her stagnant life.

Review:

"Benjamin's rich debut novel ... moves at an unhurried pace, allowing characters to slowly reveal themselves and their pasts ... feels authentic, not overly gritty or idealized. Expert details about the culture and process of winemaking are seamlessly woven into the narrative, and lush descriptions ... may have readers reaching for a glass ... A smooth, mellow read with notes of inspiration and drama, and a satisfying finish." - Kirkus Reviews
