Crikey was I reading the same book!,
This review is from: The Olive Harvest: A Memoir of Love, Old Trees, and Olive Oil (Paperback)
Picked up this book to cheer myself up reading about others
living the good life in the sun but right from the start things
were going wrong for Carol. The olives were not fruiting
Michael was becoming strangely distant and unhappy.Drought conditions
were a worry. Forest fires were constantly
threatning the farm. A horrid car accident followed- (beautifully described
by the way)
Michael was trying to leave and packing suitcases with a head
injury! Carol was left alone to struggle and went on her travels alone.
Phew, I felt quite stressed with it all and did not enjoy reading it.
She writes well but the subject matter was difficult.
