Description - Shadows of Olive Trees by Susanne Gervay

Before the #MeToo movement, there is the second rise of feminism. Tessa and her friends are looking for love, their voice, changing and wanting to be all they can be. Breaking traditional roles, there are challenged from parents, the church, community. But there's college and new freedom, except they can be dangerous. A story of women's empowerment set against a background of the emerging women's movement, this a story that has significant relevance today. Set in the mid-70s, this is the story of Tessa and her bonds with Athena and Jenny. 'Gervay gets better with every book.' - Spectrum Sydney Morning Herald.
