Proof

Dick Francis
Genre

Rating
Review
As always, Francis sets the story among the horse racing crowd in England. This time, a tragic accident occurs at a lawn party hosted by a trainer. The story focuses, however, on fraud in the bottling and distribution of fine wines and liquors; the title comes from the nomenclature involved in declaring percent alcohol in spirits. The action focuses on the activity of the wine merchant who catered the party and who tries to track down the source of mis-labeled beverages, as a homicide and other crimes occur. The reader gets a real education in details of the manufacturer of wine and certain spirits.

Review
After she receives an unsettling report from her doctor, Iris Bowen feels she must fulfill a promise made to her dying husband--to find the birth mother of their adopted daughter, Rose.
Iris's search takes her from a small town in Ireland to Boston, in America.
Meanwhile Iris, a gifted musician, is facing her own challenges, both career, and personal.
A little too "coincidental", but easy read with some good character development.  Her Name is Rose
Recommendation
