“The Inheritance” is the latest novel by JoAnn Ross. When conflict photographer Jackson Swann dies, he leaves behind a conflict of his own making. His three daughters, each born to different mothers, discover they’re responsible for the family’s Oregon vineyard – and for a family they didn’t ask for. As the sisters reluctantly gather at the vineyard, they’re soon enchanted by the Swann family matriarch and namesake of Maison de Madelene wines; her stories of bravery in World War II France and her love for a wounded American soldier reveal the family legacy they’ve each inherited and change the course of all their lives. The ebook is available in Libby/Overdrive and the digital audio is available through Hoopla!
