THE ROOTS OF THE OLIVE TREE

by | Read by Karen White

Fiction • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Five generations of women living together is rare. It’s even rarer that the oldest family member, Anna, 112, is still vibrant enough to pick olives. Yet this is the premise for Santo’s novel, narrated by Karen White. The Keller women have caught the attention of a scientist studying the longevity gene, and his research shakes up their lives, revealing secrets long hidden. White does not deliver significant variations of voice, other than for Anna, who is originally from Australia. But, thanks to her skill and the organization of the book, it is never a problem to know who is speaking. This is a moving novel, and White's heartfelt narration enhances it.
