Georgia has been reading My Corfu Love Story by Effrosyni Moschoudi
It has been a while since I felt the Mediterranean sun on my skin and I have to say that was partly behind my decision to choose this book. I hoped it would be filled with wonderful descriptions that would give me a taste of Corfu, and I was not disappointed.
The love shines out from this short book. Spyri’s love for her grandmother (what a wonderful relationship they had), love for Corfu and the village of Moraitika, love for the food and of course love for the love interest, Markos.
There is also a super note from the author at the end with links to take you to discover more about Moraitika and Messonghi, as well as a family recipe.
Effrosyni Moschoudi is Greek and her love for all things Greek shines out from every page of this most enjoyable short read which I recommend to anyone who wants a break in the sunshine.
Spyri forever lives in the past, haunted by old memories. This summer, she meets a man she once loved, and he is about to change everything…
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…
