Fiction fans and wine enthusiasts everywhere are in for another treat. Angus Kennedy, the author who debuted last year with “Two Tickets to Dubrovnik” – a novel centered on an Australian wine writer – returns with the second installment of the Out of Solitude trilogy, titled A View from the Languedoc. Set in France, London and Dubrovnik, Kennedy’s equally intriguing sequel follows the evolution of the main character’s professional and personal life.

In this story, Australian wine writer, Andrew Johnston, is again staying in Europe, this time with his brother, Adrian, for both work and a holiday. He receives an extensive new project from his publisher that takes him through the premium wine producing regions of France, during which he meets up again with a number of his old acquaintances from both France and Dubrovnik. Among these is Niki Menčetić and the chance meeting rekindles his old feelings for her.

Fiction fans who enjoy a tinge of romance will be intrigued by the development of Andrew’s relationship with Niki and the on-going intrusion of the unknown from her various family affairs. Moreover, wine enthusiasts will be fascinated by the detail and insights into the French wine industry that Kennedy brings into his writing, backed by nearly three decades of experience in the winemaking industry in Australia, New Zealand, France, Italy and the United States.

With his deepening plot, ever-engaging storyline, and solid expertise in wine, Kennedy has made A View from the Languedoc an enticing follow-up to his debut novel. What makes his writing uniquely refreshing is the amalgamation of national and cultural differences, personal development and Europe’s wine industry. Kennedy leaves readers with this simple message: “Life is not simple; but can be made manageable with faith and belief.”
