Gwen Clayton, author
Fermata Cellars is the debut novel by author Gwen Clayton. It tells the story of a young marketing director who grew up as the son of a migrant farmworker in the vineyard and has now worked his way up into management. In his youth, he had heard stories of the winery being haunted, but he never believed them. As an adult, he finally learns the truth. This is the first book of the Rivervine Trilogy. The second will tell the story from the ghost's point of view. The third will be from the newspaper editor's point of view. Together, they show that the truth has many sides... all of which are valid. The story will also challenge your religious and political beliefs as it dives into the concepts of spirituality, justice and free will. It is best read while drinking a bold, spicy California red wine.
