Carol Drinkwater's first book The Olive Farm was interesting, informative and a good read. Since then she seems to have lost steam and in the Olive Harvest I felt she dwelled too much on her personal problems.

There are 5 books in this series by Carol Drinkwater (also an actor, who played in All Creatures Great and Small as James Herriot's wife for the first 3 years of the series). They are autobiographical, enchanting, and informative. I'm enjoying them immensely.

The first in Carol Drinkwater’s bestselling trilogy set on a Provençal olive farm

The first in Carol Drinkwater’s bestselling trilogy set on a Provençal olive farm. All my life, I have dreamed of acquiring a crumbling, shabby-chic house overlooking the se. .a corner of paradise where friends can gather to swim, relax, debate, eat fresh fruits picked directly from the garden and great steaming plates of food served from an al fresco kitchen and dished up on to a candlelit tabl. The Olive Farm is a double love story.

Have read 2 previous books in this series. I enjoy Carol's books, but gave this one a 4 star rating because I felt
left hanging and unresolved when I finished the book. Carol shares a lot of her pain and grief at her husband's
estrangement from her for a while. The relationship survived somehow, but the reader was not allowed to understand how this came to be. Perhaps she was respecting his privacy, but as an empathic reader I would liked to
have had a bit more understanding because she is forthright in sharing her pain throughout the book and I cared about her.
I like this book because I learned a lot about olives and enjoyed the character descriptions of Mr. Quashia and others.
It's refreshing to read an unpretentious book about one who moves to Europe, buys land and restores a big house,
but doesn't always have charming neighbors nor a sense of elevated intellectual and cultural sensibility.

Read anything written by Carol Drinkwater and you will be enchanted, bewitched. Her craft is words. Her art is story. Her words will lift you high in the arms of beauty, entangle you in visions and dreams of the strange and romantic, hold you tight in emotions that will
take your breath away, then rock you gently with love, empathy, hope, understanding. It's a hell of a ride -- one that you will be glad you took. THE OLIVE HARVEST is her best book yet -- although I have said that about each of Carol Drinkwater's previous books. How she can improve perfection I do not know, but I am moving on to her next "OLIVE" book to find out. do try to read her "OLIVE" books in the order written. Then join her "Olive Farm" Facebook page.

This is the third book of the Olive Farm series and I enjoyed reading it just as much as the first two (The Olive Farm and The Olive Season). I just love Carol Drinkwater's eloquent and spiritual writing. Her style is quite unique, the way she describes her life at the farm interwoven with a spiritual sense of well being and a stubborness and perseverence in staying optomistic through the trials and tribulations of her life with and without her husband, Michel. I also love the way she beautifully describes her farm, the gorgeous views and its surrounding countryside. It makes you want to move there!

I have already ordered the fourth book, The Olive Route and I'm looking forward to reading it.

I enjoyed it, and will read some of her others from this series. However she gets a bit too preachy about her feelings about killing animals - to the determent of her trees and livelihood. Silly, actually. The wild boars are tearing down her fences faster than she can put them back and eating or destroying trees. They are a menace and she is..foolish. Her commitment to organic is good, but she again, is not always realizing bugs can decimate her stock of 400 plus old olive trees.

If the next book has the same kind of sentiment, I will bail on the rest of them.

I was not aware when I first began reading this book that it is essentially a diary about a few seasons on a French olive plantation. I thought I was reading a story by a sleepwalking narrator who seemed to come alive with jarring inserts of factual information better left to footnotes. It's just that so much was left out, be it the setting, the past, the personal, that it was as though the writer had put on blinders. I know this author has many fans, but I was not enthralled.

this is a wonderful reality story, that takes you to the fields, and the kitchen ,to taste the rich oils from the garden, it also puts you into the minds of the people that are involved with living the wonderful, and down to earth life, as only you can in provence. the scenery is beautiful, the house and the written words come to life, it's as if you are there, living it. the story brings to mind, in all of us, in trying to escape into the authors world , to be able to experience the same as ms. drinkwater and her family have. a wonderful book, well written, as all her other books, on the olive harvests, and her farm. a good read, on any day. i can hardly wait for the next book to come out. i look forward to another good escape read.

I bought the entire series. Very enjoyable and well-written. These books in the Olive Farm series tell of the story of Carol's trials and tribulations of purchasing a property in Southern France and the subsequent development of the property as an olive farm. Take-away: never buy property in France! You'll lose you money and your mind! These books are great reading when you want to live vicariously thought someone else's home nightmares. Truly enjoyable.
I felt this book lacked energy, zing. Carol Drinkwater's first book The Olive Farm was interesting, informative and a good read. Since then she seems to have lost steam and in the Olive Harvest I felt she dwelled too much on her personal problems. I kept on reading to see when something would happen but it just didn't seem to get off the ground somehow. It was entertaining, light reading, though I certainly wouldn't rave over it.
