A Widower, A Witch, And Wine.
After the untimely passing of his wife, Hugo Dodds is numb, grief-stricken, and haunted by the memories of a life taken from him all too soon. Though his small-town Ohio neighbors try to help him move on with blind dates and encouragement, he is unable to let go of his beloved Elizabeth.
But when a late-night backyard encounter introduces Hugo to his eccentric new neighbor, Alice Primrose, he feels a spark of change in him. Alice’s zest, hope, and optimism give him new life. As their relationship develops, he discovers that Alice is secretly a witch who specializes in making magical wine.
Alice opens Hugo up to a world he never knew existed. She teaches him how to ride a broomstick, the finer points of magical wine making, and how to enjoy life again. But as his feelings for Alice grow, Hugo struggles with the ultimate question: Is he finally ready to move on, or is this new love a betrayal to Elizabeth?
