Roots of The Olive Tree by Courtney Miller SantoI was first attracted to this book because of the name olive tree in the title Coming from a family of nurserymen this would be right up my alleyLove the proverbs and how they are useful to the olive pickersThis is a story about 5 generations of women and there is a geneticist coming to find out why they live so long He hopes to find out all their secretsLove hearing about the olive trees nurserygrafting and why their products are so usefulPicking olives sounds to me like what knitting does for me very calmingSuch great treasures in the attic One of the best books out of hundreds I ve read this year So fascinating to learn all about the DNA the mutations andwhat they can attribute it to Love hearing about the location of where the book takes place as it s new to meLike how each of the 5 sisters got a large devoted part in this book At the end it just all the mysteries come together and there are no longer any secrets to uncoverFor a book to be worthwhile to me it has to do two things 1 take me away to a new place describe it so well that i can feel myself there This book has done that to thepoint where I can reach up and feel the olives as they ripen walking the rows of treesand 2 learn something new This book has done that as well Techniues of grafting the tree branches and the treasures they find in the attic

characters Æ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Courtney Miller Santo Courtney Miller Santo ☆ 0 Read The Roots of the Olive Tree Read å 100 Set in a house on an olive grove in northern California The Roots of the Olive Tree is a beautiful touching story t. The description of the book a story surrounding five living generations of women appealed on that very women s fiction level The synopsis hinted at hidden secrets along with this very interesting family dynamic that brings all five of these women back under the same Californian roof Santo broke her narrative into five sections one section for each generation s POV plus a bonus epilogue from the perspective of the sixth generation Unfortunately the secrets revealed came surprisingly early in the book The largest downfall however was the ending nothing resolved and the epilogue raised uestions than it answered Of the characters introduced only two have reached actual conclusions by the end of the book none of the other characters came close to reaching any sort of resolution And a large event planned for towards the end and its lack of follow through was particularly frustratingThe issue of longevity here played an interesting theme But for those at all familiar with genetics the longevity here is played like magic than science Though this is definitely fiction it would have felt like a authentic story if Santo had left the science alone The scrambled explanation about the longevity being gender specific doesn t actually work If this mutation is passed along the sex chromosomes it would be the X chromosome in particular but women have two X s so it would be not less likely for the males to display the longevity as they have only X chromosome and would not have a compensating X Either let the longevity be a function of fiction and work as magical realism or research genetics I just couldn t suspend disbelief the way the facts were presented here
