AbstractHistoryArchive Description

When Adrienne's marketing company goes down, her lifestyle does too. She retreats from the city to the beautiful, abandoned olive grove once owned by her Italian grandparents. A 'tree change' isn't what Adrienne has in mind, however, and life in the country delivers some surprises as she confronts the past and learns the secrets of the Olive Sisters...Old loves, new loves, warm toast and rich traditions are all part of the delicious blend of this absorbing story. (Publisher's blurb)
