Hardcover, 320 pages
Expected publication: August 21st 2012 by William Morrow
ISBN: 006213051X (ISBN13: 9780062130518)

From the publisher:

An extraordinary new voice in contemporary woman's fiction, Courtney Miller Santo makes her magnificent debut with a novel that will delight fans of Sarah Blake's The Postmistress, The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd, and the works of Kristin Hannah. Set in a house on an olive grove in northern California, The Roots of the Olive Tree is a beautiful, touching story that brings to life five generations of women--including an unforgettable 112 year-old matriarch determined to break all Guinness longevity records--the secrets and lies that divide them and the love that ultimately ties them together.

  15. Hi Kaye,

    I have only read one of the comparison books you mentioned, 'The Secret Life Of Bees' and that I really enjoyed.

    I like books that get into the human psyche and what can be more enticing than five generations of women that have lived in the same house.

    A definite for my reading list, thanks for the recommendation.

  18. Thanks for stopping by my blog, Kaye. It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance. As for what you said about historical horror / sci-fi, I could say the same thing about contemporay women's fiction. Different strokes for different folks, eh? I'm just glad to see other folks getting excited about books. That's all that really matters, ain't it? :)

  21. I haven't seen this one before, but based on the books it's supposed to be similar too and that brief summary, it definitely sounds like one I could really enjoy.
