Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is rare within the travel writing genre. It cleverly combines a travel narrative with enlightened observations about Greece, while retaining a light and entertaining touch." - Peter Kerr, best-selling author of Snowball Orange

"Her empathy with Greece and refusal to lapse into sentimentality makes this a witty and poignant book." - Richard Clark, author of the Greek Notebook series.

"I loved this book. If you can't get to Greece, pick up a copy of 'Scorpion' and enjoy the ride." - Maria Karamitsos, founder, Chicago-based internet magazine WindyCity Greek

"I absolutely love all three books in this series. One common thread is the way they give a human perspective to the Greek financial crisis. The author writes with compassion and understanding about the often impossible decisions people face just to survive. This is heavy subject matter, but because the author has such a personal connection to Greece and its people, she is able to write about it with warmth, and with humor." - Dawn, Goodreads reviewer

"Through the author's wisdom, honesty and ability to relate the comic and tragic, this is a masterful description of Greek village life." Pamela Rogers, author of Greekscapes

"Fun and enlightening." - Expat Bookshop site
