The Olive Season by Carol Drinkwater
The Olive Season is the follow up book to The Olive Farm which is the non fiction account of Carol's move to an Olive farm in France. Carol has a wonderful voice as a narrator and her easy going ,laid back writing style is refreshing and very enjoyable. It really feels more like listening to a friend tell you of their adventures in exotic locations then a stranger you are reading about in a book.. In this book Carol tells us of all the work involved with moving home, a wedding, while later finding out she was pregnant.. The story will have you day dreaming about sunny days in France sipping wine while looking over Olive trees as you perhaps sit up in bed drinking tea like I did. Carol's book will make you smile, make your heart break ....I admit it there was tears...lots of them , it will stay with you long after the last page is closed. Now I must go read book 1. ......(shuffles off to find it.......).... Go read it guys!!! You're going to love it!!
