Summary
An aging California vintner is determined to protect her empire from a hostile family takeover and the dark secrets that could destroy everything she loves At age seventy-four, Assaria "Sari" LeBaron is still a force to be reckoned with. For decades, she has run the Baronet Vineyards, one of California's largest and most successful wine producers, maintaining sole control even after a suspicious accident left her permanently crippled. And now, in her golden years, the formidable Sari refuses to relinquish power to her own children, a decision that has only served to increase tensions among her already emotionally damaged family members. But Sari's ambitious son, Eric, is no longer willing to play a subservient role, and has begun working behind the scenes to take over the business, forming alliances within and outside the family in his effort to dethrone the unyielding matriarch. The most difficult fight of Sari LeBaron's long and eventful life has begun; a heartbreaking struggle that will pit loved one against loved one and expose long-hidden secrets that could destroy both Sari's business and her family. The LeBaron Secret is another riveting excursion into a world of privilege that Stephen Birmingham knows intimately. It is a breathtaking tale of secrets and lies, shady double-dealings, family skeletons, and the inner turmoil of the fabulously wealthy as only the bestselling author of "Our Crowd" and The Auerbach Will could tell it
Summary
A dramatic confrontation between Assyria LeBaron, matriarch of a family of wealthy vintners, and her sister-in-law Joanna, a N.Y. advertising executive, over the proposed takeover of the business by Assyria's son reveals a dark secret from the past
