The story unravels and we learn more and more about the relationships between the generations – mothers and daughters.  Isn’t that a bond that continually fascinates us?  They each of secrets and dreams.  Through it all their bond keeps them from becoming too far apart, but will that always be true?
What Others Say
“Rich with secrets, this lovely novel winds through the lives of these women, exposing their untruths and secrets when a geneticist seeks the reason for their youthfulness.  Reading this novel will make you yearn for your sister, mother, grandmother, and a chunk of bread dipped into a dark fruity olive oil.  The Roots of the Olive Tree is simply sublime, and a debut not to be missed by any lover of fiction.” – Anne Philbrick, Bank Square Books, Mystic Conneticut
“Family secrets and lost loves all set amongst the fragrant orchard.  For fans of Ann Siddons and Sarah Addison Allen.” – Valerie Koehler, Blue Willow Bookshop, Houston, Texas
