Michael C. Hurley’s novel The Vineyard is a reflective piece on the mysteries of fate. The three main characters are the wealthy Dory Delano, the skeptical Turner Graham, and the mourning Charlotte Harris. They have been best friends since college and decide to reunite in Martha’s Vineyard. However, while Dory struggles with her responsibilities, Charlotte makes plans to commit suicide in order to be reunited with her daughter Madeline. Thanks to a bizarre twist of fate in the form of a reclusive fisherman, Charlotte has a new reason to live. Meanwhile, even though Turner is skeptical about the so-called miracles that seem to follow the mysterious fisherman, she decides to write about the events on her blog.
