Freda and Brenda spend their days working in an Italian-run wine-bottling factory. A work outing offers promise for Freda and terror from Brenda; passions run high on that chilly day of freedom, and life after the outing never returns to normal.

I really didn’t gel with this book, I didn’t become engrossed with the storyline or the characters which is shame.
