Corked: A Memoir by Kathryn Borel
Corked is the true story of 26-year-old Kathryn Borel's wine-tasting trip through France with her father. Mr. Borel was born in France and is a great lover of wine with an extensive wine cellar. This trip is Ms. Borel's attempt to get to know her father and develop a deeper understanding of his passion for wine. Kathryn hopes to strenghten her bond with her French-born wine aficionado father. The results will make you laugh out loud.
The book also deals with some serious issues Kathryn has to deal with, like forgiving herself for accidentally killing an old man, and getting over her last broken relationship with an ex-boyfriend.
I liked Ms. Borel's story. Her analogies for the wines she was tasting were
perfect. The writing is contemporary and fun and a book I highly recommend not only for the lessons in wine/tasting/history but also for the lessons in love.
