The Jasmine Flower Garden

A captivating story about an inheritance, a love affair and a jasmine flower garden in Liguria

Lawyer Giulia Zeidler travels from Frankfurt to the Ligurian coast to visit the farm where her late grandfather Enzo lived. She has only recently learned of his existence; her mother has never spoken about him before. Enzo has left his daughter his house and some two-hundred olive trees – but she shows no interest in her inheritance, and plans to sell the property as quickly as possible. Giulia, on the other hand, is immediately enchanted by the region’s incredible beauty.

But the neighbours meet this young German woman with distrust. Is she going to sell her grandfather’s olive grove? To a dreaded investor? Will she rent the property out to a neighbour, or farm the land herself? Her grandfather had mastered the art of growing jasmine, and the sale of that valuable plant was what financed his traditional olive grove. Only Marco (the adult son of the owner of the neighbouring olive grove), who has recently returned from Genoa, greets Giulia with an open mind. Despite all his reservations he falls in love with her, and she with him. But the situation in the villa by the sea is more complicated than it seems.
