Olive

Gannon, Emma, 1989-2021
Books
Olive is many things. Independent. Adrift. Anxious. Loyal. Kind. Knows her own mind. It's ok that she's still figuring it all out, navigating her world without a compass. But life comes with expectations, there are choices to be made, boxes to tick and - sometimes - stereotypes to fulfil. And when her best friends' lives start to branch away towards marriage and motherhood, leaving the path they've always followed together, Olive starts to question her choices - because life according to Olive looks a little bit different. Moving, memorable and a mirror for every woman at a crossroads, 'Olive' has a little bit of all of us. Told with great warmth and nostalgia, this is a modern tale about the obstacle course of adulthood, milestone decisions and the 'taboo' about choosing not to have children.
