From the Summer of Love to the Valley of the Moon depicts Ms. Martin’s journey from a teenager’s rock and roll wedding in San Francisco during the Summer of Love to becoming the founder of an iconic winery in the Valley of the Moon. Throughout the memoir is the consistent thread of one woman’s perseverance, creativity, and stamina that aided Ms. Martin in overcoming cultural norms and controlling abuse. Over all, it is a tale of personal growth against great odds.
