Escape to Italy with The Olive Branch - the irresistible newnovel from Jo Thomas, author of ebook bestsellerThe Oyster Catcher. 'I loved it!' Katie Fforde

You can buy almost anything online these days. For Ruthie Collins, it was an Italian farmhouse.

Yet as she battles with a territorial goat and torrential rain just to get through the door of her new Italian home, the words of Ed, her ex, are ringing in her ears. She is daft, impetuous and irresponsible.

But Ruthie is determined to turn things around and live the dream.

First, though, she must win over her fiery neighbour, Marco Bellanouvo, and his family... Then there's the small matter of running an olive farm. As the seasons change and new roots are put down, olives and romance might just flourish in the warmth of the Mediterranean sun.

    I loved this book. Probably a bit predictable but I could just picture the lovely Italian countryside and the huge family interplay. It is centred around a part of Italy (with the trulli houses) that I haven't yet visited, but the descriptions in this book really keep this part of Italy on my wish list.

  • By Cherriemayhem on 1 May 2017

    A lovely story about taking a chance, hard work and a bit of romance, set in a beautiful location. This book just gave me that warm fuzzy feeling. Loved it

    Loved every word. Lots of interesting facts about Italy and the making of olive oil as well as a story line e that kept me hooked.

    Unsurprisingly, lots of things seem to go wrong when Ruthie buys a house in Italy on Ebay.We can only watch (and sometimes smile) as she battles to solve all the problems, including the goat!Enjoyable easy read

    A good feel book. Great for a holiday read. Quite a long book too. Very well written. Romance and a bit of humour thrown in.

    It was one of those books I couldn't wait to get back to . I've not long come back from Corfu with all its olive trees and even though it is not Corfu i kept feeling like I was back there . I recommend it to anyone who needs to feel like they're somewhere like that at times . Wonderful 🤗

    In this story we follow Ruthie who has just split with her boyfriend and has to find somewhere else to live and takes a huge gamble and buys a house in Italy on EBay. With a lot of hard work and many problems to solve, she slowly finds her way and manages to find romance in this beautiful setting.
