Reliving the Corfu dream in the build-up to Easter
This week, in the build-up to Greek Easter and the release of my new book, Good Morning, Corfu: A Year on a Greek Island, I will be republishing some posts written during the twelve months that I lived in a rural village in North West Corfu.
The book is now available to order as an ebook on Kindle and also as a paperback.
I'll be doing a signing in Corfu on Greek Easter Monday and also in Bridport in May.
Here's the blurb:
Good Morning, Corfu: A Year on a Greek Island charts the spell woven by this Greek island on an English couple for whom the past is in danger of being more exciting than the future. In an honest, affectionate and warm account of a grown-up gap year, UK magazine columnist Maddie Grigg introduces the reader to a cast of real-life characters and the rich history of Corfu’s traditions, and reveals what happens when the holidaymakers have gone home.
Who wouldn't want to throw in the day-job and head off to the sun for a year? Just like the Durrells, Maddie Grigg and her husband abandoned rainy Dorset for a new adventure on the Greek island of Corfu.
With beautiful countryside, kind neighbours and plenty of sunshine, what could have been better?
But Maddie was unprepared for the ache for home, which lives in us all. Good Morning, Corfu: A Year on a Greek Island is a story of love, friendship and laughter and what happens when two people go on a whim and a prayer to a beautiful but foreign country.
That's about it.
