But there, in the centre of the garden, with one end of the hammock my mother used to lie in still attached - it's strings like old and fraying spaghetti - stands the olive tree.

A magical house. A momentous summer.

It has been twenty-four years since a young Helena spent a magical holiday in Cyprus, where she fell in love for the first time. When the now crumbling house, 'Pandora', is left to her by her godfather, she returns to spend the summer there with her family.

Yet, as soon as Helena arrives at Pandora, she knows that its idyllic beauty masks a web of secrets that she has kept from William, her husband, and Alex, her son.

At the difficult age of thirteen, Alex is torn between protecting his beloved mother, and growing up. And equally, desperate to learn the truth about his real father ...

When, by chance, Helena meets her childhood sweetheart, a chain of events is set in motion that threatens to make her past and present collide. Both Helena and Alex know that life will never be the same, once Pandora's secrets have been revealed ...

“Very disappointed”

Having been completely enthralled by the Severn Sisters series, I really had high hopes for The Olive Tree. The utter disappointment in the writing style, the one dimensional characters who I did not warm to one bit,... More
