In the heart of the California wine country, secrets seem to grow on the vines with the grapes that Uriel Macon’s family has carefully tended for generations. Uriel Macon, the winery’s young widower, steers clear of complicated relationships other than the one he’s developed with the horse he rides daily. He plans to stick to the lonely comfort of wine and horses forever, but for a chance encounter with the wealthy local, Jim Scanlon. Uriel is reminded of his love affair with Jim’s daughter Amanda years ago, that ended abruptly, and mysteriously. Amanda Scanlon is simultaneously pulled back to Sonoma after years of traveling, due to a family crisis. In the Scanlon’s Spanish villa high above the valley, Amanda faces the broken relationships she left behind. An anthropologist by training, Amanda’s instinct is to demand the truth concerning her parents’ complicated history and her own parentage. But Amanda’s unveiling of the past has devastating consequences, and the Scanlon’s lives are changed forever. In contrast to the setting of California’s beautiful Sonoma Valley, the Scanlons struggle to face harsh challenges with dignity and grace, over the course of one year. Their fate is surprisingly intertwined with the Macons. Both Amanda and Uriel stretch to take care of their families as they face immigration, divorce, loss, and illness. As they navigate these challenges, they must decide whether they trust themselves to love again, or to finally let each other go. A Sonoma local, Joanell Serra offers a debut novel that is a captivating, poignant, and uplifting story, demonstrating that the seeds planted long ago continue to grow. Sometimes into a strangling weed, sometimes offering a bountiful harvest.


Joanell Serra, MFT lives with her growing children, husband and dogs in the lovely Sonoma Valley. After years of publishing short stories, essays and plays, The Vines We Planted is her debut novel.
