What a wonderful book June 6 2007
By Stella Sophia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I can't express how wonderful this book was. I may not be Greek by birth, but I am in my heart. While I go to Greece yearly, I long to be there year-round. This book has helped me connect to my favorite place when I have to be in the States. It is great to read some of the other women's experiences and see how they parallel my own. I highly recommend this book to any woman who loves Greece.

Enjoyed the stories Sept. 16 2009
By mcthom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the stories in this book. I only wish my copy had arrived before we left for Greece! I ordered it from Amazon marketplace 2 weeks before the trip, but apparently that is not enough time. The stories are from very diverse perspectives, about different places in Greece, though most of them are from the 1970s and 80s so things have changed a lot.

Disappointed... June 12 2010
By W. Yi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After reading the reviews, I bought this book as preparation for my upcoming trip to Greece. Disappointed by the superficial caracter of the histories:some weathy women's trip and their narrow views on Greek culture;over Greek machisme; some superficial experience of Greek food, etc. I did not learn much from their stories and even, it's waste of time. Now I learn that the reviews of others would not correspond always to that of everyone.

A Well-Chosen Variety Of Essays June 15 2012
By Someone Else - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The editor did an excellent job of selecting these essays. They reflect a great variety of experiences and locales in Greece. There are 19 pieces, each by a different writer. Don't be put off by the book title. The "love story" refers to love of Greece, not sappy romances.

My favorites, in the order they appear in the book:

1)"Kostas and the Deep Sea"
Just overall rowdy fun!

2)"Adespotos"
The author had Greek parents but was adopted as an infant by Americans. As an adult she traveled to the mountains of Greece to visit the place where her life began.

3)"Siga Siga"
An interesting overview of the bicycling experience in Greece.

4)"A UFO in Greece"
The author married a Greek man and describes the gradual process of adjusting as a foreigner and being accepted.

5)"Rhodes's Lost Little Jerusalem"
A short but powerful piece that made me cry. The author visited the Kahal Shalom Synagogue in Rhodes and had a chance encounter with a Jewish woman who had been one of those rounded up by the Nazis in 1944. There was once a Jewish community of 2,000 in Rhodes. Now there are thirty.

I enjoyed all of the other pieces to varying degrees, with one exception:

"At the Seashore with Medea: A Marriage Unravels in Athens"
Full of self-pity over an unexpected divorce, this miserable thing didn't belong in the book. It was really all about herself and not about Greece.
