The Olive Tree: The Bestselling Story of Secrets and Love Under the Cyprus Sun (English Edition) Versión Kindle
A summer in Cyprus reveals many secrets in The Olive Tree, the number one international bestseller from Lucinda Riley, author of the bestselling Seven Sisters series.
*This title is also published as Helena's Secret.*
A magical house. A momentous summer.
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 spend the summer there with her family.
Yet, as soon as Helena arrives at Pandora, she knows that its idyllic beauty masks a web of secrets that she has kept from William, her husband, and Alex, her son. At the difficult age of thirteen, Alex is torn between protecting his beloved mother, and growing up. And equally, desperate to learn the truth about his real father . . .
When, by chance, Helena meets her childhood sweetheart, a chain of events is set in motion that threatens to make her past and present collide. Both Helena and Alex know that life will never be the same, once Pandora's secrets have been revealed . . .

My youngest daughter has just read The Seven Sisters and we are like two kids in a playground comparing notes! It's so much fun to see how we both felt about it and to discover that we both felt exactly the same about certain parts of the story. My daughter actually said I just want to give up work and read Lucinda Riley's books for a job.

I couldn’t find my Cyprus in this book. I found a collection of English people who reminisced a lot about the past and it’s effect on the present. I didn’t take to the changes in tense from the main part of the book being written in the past tense to a boy’s diary being written in the present tense.
I couldn’t have cared less about the social relationships and activities of the characters. There was nothing in the story that informed me in a positive way and made me feel that I would like to go there or to have ‘that’ experience or to see those mountains or flowers or churches or museums or festivals etc. There is so much in Cyprus and it has seen some of the greatest history in the Mediterranean.
The pages are littered with cliches; the characters are unlikeable and one dimensional, behaving like the teen love stories in the Jackie magazines of my youth. is strikingly handsome, devastatingly beautiful or just plain unbelievable.
Riley's attempt to create a counterpoint to the ridiculous antics of the adolescent adults by reproducing an Adrian Mole character in the form of the 'gifted but different' son fails hopelessly and becomes risible as the chapters go by. Thank God, he finally matures and becomes the only character in the book with any faint resemblance to humanity whatsoever.
I have got to totally agree with a previous reviewer regarding Alex's diary as it did so remind me of Adrian Mole and was just as irritating.
I am hoping this is a one off in disappointing LR books.
You think you know what the secrets are, and you find out you may be correct; but then the twists begin as Helena starts to tell her story.
Really then it all makes sense! But how sad. Alex really does save his parents marriage which is lovely, but then falls into the same web of secrets from the love of his life!
It's like watching a car crash, thankfully there is a happy ending; Pandora's curse is lifted, and the hero gets his girl. The end.
