Sometimes we meet people who we are drawn to because they are absolutely delightful. A positive, happy attitude to life. Prepared to make mistakes and learn from rather than being cowed by them. Who celebrates the lives of others and is open to the joy of beautiful places. And who is prepared to assess their life path in a practical independent way and act on what is discovered.
This describes the writer, Jennifer Barclay: I felt as if I had actually met her and listened first hand to the captivating stories in her book Falling in Honey. In it she writes a beautifully descriptive celebration of the Greek island of Tilos, adjacent to the Turkish coast. It is read with energy and evident delight by Lucy Price-Lewis (I want to hear more of her -- she matched the narrative perfectly).
Anyone who has the glorious experience of staying on a Greek island and swimming in the Aegean sea will revisit through this book -- or will find their feet itching. But it's not a travel book, really, it's well, meeting up with a joyous, happy friend.
Furthermore, this is a contemporary work. The writer can continue her non island employment via the internet and when the last words have been spoken, all is not finished because her blog is available to all.
This book is awesome, I was there, I was in Tilos enjoying every moment of Jennifers experience. This audio book had me gripped from start to finish. Can't wait for her next book but in the meantime I will follow her blog.

With beautiful descriptions which were very evocative of Greece and with wonderful recipes this book makes for an interesting read. As the reader I felt curious about the authors journey and wondered where the story would lead. I still felt that way at the end of the book. There was something detached about the writing and emotions were dealt with with brevity. At times I found it hard to identify with the author. I was left with a sense of something missing.
