This book seems to be more of a memoir than a story about olive trees. Drinkwater weaves in so much flotsam that its tough to follow the story. Moreover, while I love her English accent, her narration is so high energy, that it is difficult to listen to.

A spectacular performance by Carol Drinkwater. An extreemly well written book brought to life with naration by the actress herself. By travelling the length and breadth of the Medditteranean the author placed herself into some dangerous situations which, thankfully, she extricated herself unharmed but wiser.
For the armchair traveller this volume, and its predecessor "The Olive Route", are rivetting.
One hopes that the author will find time to add to her trilogy and that Audible will include any further works in their catalogue

Having recently converted my partner to listening to audio books I had searched for these books for some time to no avail. I am so pleased that Audible have now included the Carol Drinkwater trilogy to their collection.
I spent many months reading her books and disapearing into her world of renovating an old run down property on an olive farm, I'm pleased that I can now listen to her story again and introduce my partner to it.
You can really feel you are there with her, discovering there is still life in the farm and enjoy her success, after great effort, in producing her own olive oil.
