Liz has been reading My Corfu Love Story by Effrosyni Moschoudi
This appealing novella transports you to the beautiful island of Corfu where Spyri has returned to visit her much loved grandmother. She has many wonderful memories of holidays in the village of Moraitika but one summer in her early teens stand out more than others. That had been when she fell for Markos, who was staying with his aunt, but she has never seen him again.
Despite her grandmother’s advancing age, she maintains the same lively spirit and Spyri loves conversations and eating with her. Making the most of the beach she describes the features of the village, bringing it to life for the reader. But when she discovers Markos may be returning for the funeral of his aunt she wonders if he will remember her.
As they rekindle their feelings for each other, they explore the area, increasing our enjoyment of the story. We know there will be a happy ending but there is a spiritual incident which clarifies the future for Spyri. A life-enhancing read for those who enjoy a simple romance without eroticism but with lots of family love and friendly understanding.

Spyri, a half-Greek restauranteur in her early thirties, is back on the island of Corfu, staying in her grandmother’s village home for a few days to decompress from her busy life in London. Her nostalgia for the good old summer days hit her upon her return. When she hears that Markos, the one she never forgot, is staying at the village, she becomes excited.
Sparks begin to fly when they meet, but Markos has his own hurts of the past to deal with…
