“Table of Hearts” is the story of a family’s saga, and their traditional values, as they move through the generations. It encompasses a love story, the Viet Nam War, and the family’s stock brokerage in Sonoma, California.

Following in the footsteps of those before him, Wallis Goginski has put the knowledge of his father and his grandfather to work for him and made the firm one of the most lucrative in history.
