REVIEW ✓ The Roots of the Olive Tree Courtney Miller Santo Ü 1 REVIEW 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
