really liked it
Read in January, 2009

13 stories linked stories portray a small town in Maine and particularly the strong-willed and often irascible Olive of the title. Olive is the main subject of only a couple of them and appears peripherally in the rest, making at least a small impact in many townspeople's lives by the force of her personality (which is less than sunny and warm, but she is a thinker). This is a fine, fine book - the writing is smooth as silk and the characters are memorable.
