A good charity shop buy that I thought might be a good release choice, along lines of Parrot In A Pepper Tree etc...

From back cover:

"Carol Drinkwater's bestselling 'The Olive Farm' told the lyrical tale of her real-life romance with partner Michel and an abandoned Provencal olive farm which they fell in love with and bought - a double love story, recounted with wit, warmth and alluring detail."

"In The Olive Season Carol is now pregnant and their ever-loyal Arab gardener is leaving to oversee the marrying off of his last son. Often unassisted and with new challenges to face, she takes on the bulk of the farm work alone. Water is, as ever, a costly problem and she goes in search of a diviner who promises almost magical results. But, as the harvest season approaches, dramatic events cast dark shadows over their olive farm.

With magnificient humanity and colourful characters, The Olive Season entices readers to Carol and Michel's vibrant Mediterranean world. It is mesmeric and uplifting storytelling."

RELEASE NOTES: Taking along to the launch of the Fant Arms OBCZ this afternoon...

UPDATE: Held a couple of books back to random release during the course of the week, so will be releasing this one somewhere this evening, probably at the Spotted Dog in Chiddingstone.

RELEASE NOTES: Heading to Brighton to do some shopping today. Will try and find The Pumphouse and release this with a few others around lunchtime... UPDATE AGAIN: And didn't, because I couldn't find the shelf, so hung on again to find a better release spot.
