(From the publisher):
Bubbly, creamy, a perfect deep gold - this was the champagne of the venerable House of Peine, one of France's oldest and most distinguished chateaux. Russian Tsars had begged for it, English Kings had toasted with it, but now Clementine Peine, the last of the line, fears that the days of the House are numbered. Her father Olivier spent more time at the local bar than tending to the vines, and her long-lost sister Mathilde has never shown an interest - until Olivier's untimely death, when Mathilde turns up determined to make the most of this dwindling asset. And then, out of the blue, a third sister appears - lovely young Sophie - and ancient family rivalries, long-ago love affairs and forgotten scandals all come bubbling up to the surface.
Clementine, Mathilde and Sophie, daughters of Champagne, have nothing in common but broken hearts - yet if their birthright is to survive they need less peine and more joie - or a miracle...
