This book would have never existed with Michel. So it is to him that I first say thank you; for his encouragement, generosity and expansive love
It is well-written but the story line is just not as interesting as her other books. In "Return to the Olive Farm", she tells the story of converting the farm to an organic operation, free of pesticides.
The Olive Farm is a double love story. We experience the highs and lows: the local customs and cuisine; the threats of fire and adoption of a menagerie of animals; the potential financial ruin and the thrill of harvesting their own olives.

When the opportunity arises for Carol Drinkwater and her husband, Michel, to purchase ten acres of a disused olive farm in the South of France, the idea seems ridiculously farfetched.After all, they are newlyweds of limited means, and Carol is still adjusting to her role as stepmother to Michel’s two daughters. But the splendor of the region becomes a force they are unable to resist. Michel presents their life savings to the real estate broker as a down payment for the farm, embarking the family on an adventure that will bring them in close contact with the charming countryside, querulous personalities, petty bureaucracies, and extraordinary wildlife (including a ravenous wild boar) of Provence. In the spirit of Peter Mayle’s A Year in Provence and Frances Mayes’s Under the Tuscan Sun, The Olive Farm is a splendid tour of southern France, from the glamour of Cannes to the Iles de Lérins and a Cistercian monastery on the tiny isle of St. Honorat, to Carol Drinkwater’s own small piece of land, which she transforms from an overgrown plot of weeds and ivy to a thriving, productive farm, transforming in the process her own dream of a peaceful and meaningful life into reality.
