"Through her stories, sentiments and humour, we see and feel her love for Greece. Put this at the top of your summer reading list." - Maria A. Karamitsos, founder and editor of WindyCity Greek, in Chicago.
"I have fallen in love with Marjory McGinn's travel memoirs set in Greece. This continuation of her life in a Greek village gives a deeper understanding of her love of Greece. Marjory is witty and observant, yet there is also a poignancy in some of her stories." - Kathryn Gauci, author of The Embroiderer.
"Beautifully written, at times funny and always insightful, it entertains and at the same time gives us a unique perspective on an indomitable country coping with crisis. What more could you ask for?" - Richard Clark, author of the Greek Notebook series.
"Another wonderful book by Marjory McGinn. The ending tugged at my heart." - Linda Fagioli-Katsiotas, author of The Nifi.
"Marjory writes at a level that sits with the best of the travelogue genre. Her depth of characterisation and turns of phrase are outstanding." - Amazon reviewer.
"Beautifully written. Her historic insight gives this book a gravitas far beyond its genre without taking anything away from a charming read." - Anthony Hooper, author of The Glass Lie.
"This book is so vivid in description, it is almost like watching a film, you can picture all the events in your mind, both funny and serious. I can't recommend these books enough." - Amazon reviewer.
"A fascinating and heartwarming memoir. I absolutely loved this book and had a huge lump in my throat at the end of it." - Valerie Poore, author of Watery Ways.
