Samantha Southern has made it. She’s gone from QVC to daytime TV and left her humble roots for dust. But then an unfortunate choice involving a major sleazebag and more than a few glasses of prosecco brings her world crashing down. Her career in tatters, Sam is struggling to stay positive when she gets an invitation to a beautiful, whitewashed farmhouse on a Greek island. Sam and her sister Fiona may have drifted apart lately, but as soon as Fiona invites Sam to visit her in Rhodes for the summer, Sam leaps at the chance to escape. She’s soon trundling up the cobbled driveway, the sun beating down on her twenty suitcases, as her two nieces come running towards her. It isn’t all sunshine and smiles though. For every afternoon spent lounging by the pool, cocktail in hand, there is a morning spent adjusting to life with two-hundred sheep. But when Sam meets handsome neighbour Spyros, who makes cheese with the farm’s milk, and the other delightful locals in Fiona’s community, she begins to appreciate the simple pleasures Greek life has to offer. Just as Sam is ready to ditch the designer gear for good though, she runs in to an old flame from home, and suddenly her London life comes hurtling back. Can her smooth-talking ex convince this city girl to return to the concrete jungle, or will the lessons she’s learned from her Greek escape persuade her to stay?

Could these crystal clear waters hide the secrets of her past? Present day For years Shelly Summer has buried herself in her work, trying to forget her past. The only time she feels truly herself is when she's diving in the Mediterranean - the calm and stillness of the clear waters help her forget. Back home, Shelly stumbles across the belongings of her great-grandmother, Gertie Smith including a recording of Gertie's memoirs. As Shelly listens to it, she starts to uncover the secrets of Gertie's past, which might just hold the key to letting go of her own. 1916 When trainee nurse Gertie Smith signs up for the war effort, she is thrilled to learn that her destination will be Greece. With a head full of blue skies and handsome men, she boards the Titanic's sister ship, the ill-fated hospital ship Britannic. Unprepared for the horrors of war, she heads for the Greek island of Lemnos on a mission to rescue three thousand wounded British soldiers. But tragically, the Britannic never reaches its destination. When rescued, Gertie is taken to the Greek island of Kea, where she meets and falls in love with a Greek fisherman, Manno - but she finds herself torn between him and her duty to an English soldier. Gertie cannot shake the guilt she feels from that tragic night the ship sank and is afraid her past will eventually catch up with her.

There’s nothing like a summer escape. A sun-kissed story about living life to the full. In the month from hell, incurable optimist Anna has lost her father and her job, and her trademark smile is dimming. Clearing out her dad’s house, she discovers a postcard of a beautiful sandy beach and a map with a route plotted to the Greek island of Kefalonia. With an empty summer stretching ahead, Anna’s eyes stray to her father’s old camper van. Next thing she knows, she’s hitting the road with friend Demi in tow, on a course from Salford to Skala! Over one unforgettable summer, Anna and Demi make their rickety way along the sparkling Mediterranean coast, the hot sun shining down on their frequent mishaps with cheerful local characters.

Meganisi is one of the smallest and most remote of the Greek Ionian Islands, but from another point of view it is the center of the world. Its sailors travel from China to Peru, and its migrants maintain familial connections from Johannesburg to Montreal. A Greek Island Cosmos reveals the historical dynamism of what appears at first sight to be a forgotten backwater. This detailed ethnographic study, written in an engaging and entertaining style, explores the basis on which the islanders' solidarity and sense of identity are constructed and reconstructed despite population mobility and economic change.
