I have to admit I was a bit disappointed with this book. It really didn't live up to its' 5 star rating which is what has prompted me to write this review. To be fair I had just read Nicholas Gage's "Eleni", so in comparison the descriptions of Greece and tragedy seemed "thin", to say the least.
It is a pleasant enough book describing a young couple falling in love with a delapidated property, in very rural Corfu, and then doing it up so they can live there when their first child is born. There are inevitably some good stories about the problems they encounter and how they overcome them with the help of their charming Greek neighbours and friends.
I would recommend this as a light read to be savoured by the sea/pool in Greece.
