Product Description


Written partly in diary form and supplemented by letters home, In the Land of Aphrodite tells of the joys and vicissitudes of Libby Rowan-Moorhouse's new and very different life when she and her husband move to Cyprus. Written in a clear, fluid style, In the Land of Aphrodite describes the limitless hospitality and communal life in a Cypriot village. Putting her experiences in context, Libby Rowan-Moorhouse outlines the history of Cyprus and its troubles. She gives vivid descriptions of the scenery and wildlife and provides some delightful illustrations. It all adds up to a lively entertaining read about an enchanting but unsettled place.

4.0 out of 5 stars Charming story of authentic village life 25 Oct 2007
With her own delightful illustrations, this is an interesting tale of the author's own experiences, some shared with her husband, of living in a typical mountain village with various Cypriot families. She confirms the laid back attitude to life and the difficulties she had to overcome in trying to instill any sense of urgency into the Cypriot workmen when things went wrong. She obviously enjoyed herself though as she describes her reluctance when she had to eventually leave the island.
