I chose to read this clean romance novella as a member of Rosie’s Book Review Team and received a copy from the author but that does not alter my review in any way.
It has been a while since I felt the Mediterranean sun on my skin and I have to say that was partly behind my decision to choose this book. I hoped it would be filled with wonderful descriptions that would give me a taste of Corfu, and I was not disappointed.
The love shines out from this short book. Spyri’s love for her grandmother (what a wonderful relationship they had), love for Corfu and the village of Moraitika, love for the food and of course love for the love interest, Markos.
There is also a super note from the author at the end with links to take you to discover more about Moraitika and Messonghi, as well as a family recipe.
Effrosyni Moschoudi is Greek and her love for all things Greek shines out from every page of this most enjoyable short read which I recommend to anyone who wants a break in the sunshine.
Thank you Georgia.
You’re welcome, Rosie.
Nothing wrong with armchair travel. No better way to escape than with a good book and if the author’s love for the place comes through, so much the better.
Agreed, Darlene, and this is a wonderful book to travel via.
Thank you for this wonderful review and for blogging it here too, Georgia. This is so precious and I am really grateful. Sending you and your readers here sunshine and warmth from summery Athens!
You’re welcome 😀
