A really good book

The Olive Farm, A Memoir of Life, Love, and Olive Oil in the South of France.

This book was recommended to me by one of you dear bloggers and I'm sorry but I don't remember who it was, but thank you! It's the first one in a series by author, Carol Drinkwater, and I was told to read them in this order ~ The Olive Farm, The Olive Season, The Olive Harvest, The Illustrated Olive Farm, and The Olive Route.

If you've ever read Peter Mayles, A Year in Provence, or Frances Mayes, Under the Tuscan Sun, you will enjoy this one too.

Happy reading!!

I read this book a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. I didn't know there were more, I will check Amazon for them.
At that time I was surprised to learn that Carol Drinkwater was a writer, as I had previously only known her as a very good actress in a British TV series I used to follow.
