Editorial Reviews


"Wetzel is able to capture differences in culture not only by giving the reader an American's perspective of Greek life, but by presenting the weirdness of American culture and influences through the thoughts and comments of the Greek characters." The Hudson Reporter

Vivid and warm portraits of life on Crete as seen by expatriate American women, these two novellas are a delight to read from start to finish. 'Mrs Papadakis' follows a theme of a 30-something heroine, Carolyn, contemplating her life choices. There is a strong comic element and lively characters, and color is added with Greek phrases sprinkled throughout. Wetzel takes a risk with 'Aspasia'. It explores family life on Crete, but the suddenness of a truly shocking storyline jolts the reader. Wetzel's writing is powerful, intelligent and humorous, and this book deserves to sell well.--Kirkus UK

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What if you went on vacation to a remote area, read Thoreau's Walden, and decided to leave "the system" and get in touch with the "earth's rhythm as calm and natural as a heartbeat". Carolyn does that and moves to Greece. You can experience it too, without leaving it all behind, in Mrs. Papadakis. Aspasia is suspenseful, without the relentless pace of some suspense novels, this novel is more thought provoking. Both are good reads.
