'I like to fancy that the part of Michel and I which is our joint soul will continue to inhabit this farm. I also like to fancy that one of the gnarled old trees, its branches decund with fruit, its twin trunks forked and twisted, long since transformed from the silvery green sapling growing promisingly on our property, will be our harbour. Within that twin-trunked olivier, the two limbs growing jointly from one root base, will reside the ame-soeurs, the twin souls, forever locked in embrace of Carol and Michel'
Returning to their home after an extended absence, Carol and her husband Michel are looking forward to summer together on the farm. A shocking blow leaves Carol alone. The future is uncertain. The Olive Harvest takes us beyond the perimeters of her olive groves to where hunters, poets, bee-keepers, boars and Gypsies abide. In search of the language of troubadours, the dark and soemtimes barbarous heart of Provence is revealed. Nature and the generosity of the South of France's harvests offers a path to joy and an abundant resolution.
