Flit lit with class,
This review is from: The Olive Tree: A Personal Journey Through Mediterranean Olive Groves (Paperback)
So many people move to a French rural retreat, sit back and start hammering away at the laptop with an eye on the bestseller list. Just as Ms Drinkwater is no ghosted actress lending a name to a potboiler, she is also no flit lit hack. Her books are the best in the genre. Well researched and a charming read.

WoW! I bought The Olive Tree last August, promising myself to read when in need of an 'injection' of paradise! Life took over, reading took a backseat...but that need arose 2 weeks ago....
What a read! As usual with Carol's books, I was immersed & addicted from page one! The skill with which Ms Drinkwater brings the pages & scenes to life is supreme. I admire her tenacity, courage & determination to evoke awareness of our planet's changes & how the not-so-
humble Olive tree may prove to be one of the answers to our world's crisis. Well done Carol, Olive Farm.......you cured my wanderlust.....for a week or 2!
