Editorial Reviews

Review

"A lovely warm read. This very personal memoir is a love letter to the characters that inhabit their little bit of paradise in the Mani and homage to the force of nature that is Wallace the Jack Russell. I look forward to part 2." Jill's Book Café book blog.
 
"Honestly, you won't be able to put this book down." Maria Karamitsos, The Greek Star newspaper, Chicago.

"An honest view of life in Greece today, as seen through the refreshingly unblinkered eyes of a very gifted author. An engaging, humour-spiced book that entertains and informs." Peter Kerr, bestselling author of Snowball Oranges.

"Marjory tells a good story with a journalist's eye for mood and detail... With luck she will write a second volume as entertaining, good-hearted and moving as this." Alex Martin, Anglo-Hellenic Review, London.

"A book to relax into, a wonderful record of Greece's uniqueness, written with wonderment, admiration and wit, all in equal measure." Anne Zouroudi, award-winning author of the Greek Detective series of novels.
"I fell in love with this book. With her good nature, insight and sense of pathos, the author perfectly portrays my country and compatriots, especially those in the villages." Margarita Nikolopoulou, Athenian poet

"The best book of its kind I've ever read. It has it all: humour, interesting facts and a good measure of sentiment... Marjory is a truly talented author." Effrosyni Moschoudi, author of The Lady of the Pier trilogy

"Marjory is a talented storyteller. Many descriptions and events made me laugh out loud, a feat until now only achieved by Douglas Adams and PG Wodehouse." Dawn, Amazon reviewer
