    An excellent contemporary fiction novel set in Cyprus The setting was amazing and I felt like I could feel the heat and see the amazing views What was interesting was the book was told from two different view points One was from Helena the ex ballet dancer who has brought her family to her childhood vacation home in Cyprus that she has just inherited from her god father The other point of view is her son Alex who desperately wants to know

    This was a proper family saga and I really enjoyed it even though the plot took a few tangents that are arguably pointless The story kept me guessing and there were times especially at the end when I struggled to put it do

The Olive Tree

It is said that anyone who comes to stay at 'Pandora' for the first time will fall in love 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 sp. Bailing on page 462 of 575 in my edition I m a big big big fan of Riley s The Seven Sisters series so I m extremely disappointed that this is my first experience with one of her standalones I ve read mixed reviews and some note that this might be one of Riley s weakest so I do very hope that s the case I really could ve done without another book full of toxic masculinity and stereotypical characters Apart from the fact that this story is predictable on every level and shouldn t be almost 600 pages long I just couldn t take the characters any I didn t need a 40 something year old man being absurdly obsessed with and jealous about the relationship his current wife had when she was 15 making her feel obliged to justify herself to him in the process Every man in this book feels authorized to comment on the actions of women as if these only concern them I didn t need the men in this book defining their wives worth first as wives then as mothers and last of all as women I also didn t need female characters like Jules blaming themselves for not having been good enough wives after episodes of insanely immature and irresponsible behavior on behalf of their husbands I didn t need an insufferable 13 year old narrator displaying misogynistic traits who felt compelled to imagine a future in which he fully controls his current love interest s actions God forbid she look at another man A narrator who later by the way enters the very delicate territory of homophobia I also didn t need so many men apologizing to each other for having stepped on their territory and by territory I mean their wives For the record this novel does not seem to intend to denounce these types of behaviors which are not OK at all The fact that all the men and all the women abide by these dynamics throughout the whole novel makes the characters feel flat and therefore extremely uninteresting A good story about past love and secrets can work just as well without the need to incorporate such toxic masculine discourses I just couldn t finish getting through this one
