One Friday in Napa is a poignant and heart-achingly beautiful novel about love, loss, and how the choices we make impact those closest to us.”

Skye Gyngell, Michelin star chef and author of How I Cook

“I’ve never experienced a novel quite like this one. On the surface, it’s a poignant story of a complex mother-daughter relationship fraught with misunderstanding and regret. But a tender love story is slowly revealed, and with it comes an unexpected culinary journey. Foodies will delight in Hamm’s mouthwatering descriptions of California wines and Italian food, while anyone with a beating heart will appreciate her powerful lesson on forgiveness. A stunning debut!”
