The Illustrated Olive Farm: A Newly Written, Illustrated Companion to Her Bestselling Trilogy Reviews

    This book was exactly what I wanted: to see the people and places I'd read about in the "Olive Trilogy" as well as revisit the stories, in consdensed form.The book is a quick read, with just enough writing and information given. Toward the end, I found myself pulling "The Olive Farm" from my bookshelf and scanning the "Treasure Islands" chapter once again to remember Carol's first visit to Île Saint-Honorat.How great to finally see Quashia's face, to view the pool as it was when Carol and Michel bought the farm, and to see a picture of Pamela!Many thanks, Carol and Michel, for this book.

    Fascinating reading and a beautiful visual accompaniment to all the books where you can actually see places and people she describes in her writing.

    As I am reading her books about the Olive farm I found this with the beautiful photographs a great read. Carol is a very descriptive author but this book just bought everything to life.

    A beautifully photographed book to go along with her trilogy of The Olive Farm books.

    Delightful to finally see photos of the farm her books describe. I've got bits of paper bookmarking my favorites as future design inspiration. Or maybe just to dream on.

    Borrowed picture book from my sister. Always nice to see photos of the places you have been reading about.

    If you can't travel to the south of France then reading this book is a fair substitute. There are lots of lovely photographs to drool over and the book itself is an interesting read.
