What three words best describe Denise Kahn’s performance?
It's love at first sight, this is what you have. A romance leads to trouble on the water, and the two are separated, one not knowing who they are, the other grieving over the "death" of the other. I enjoyed this short novella, getting to know the characters and touring Greece at the same time.

Any additional comments?
A novella full of passion Alex Kouros is a guitar maker as well as a beer brewer. Quite by accident, he meets Cassie Beckham from Boston at the Athenian art gallery. She is a sculptor and also appreciates the finer things in life. They have a lovely love story. Great audiobook to listen to.
I received a free copy from the author.

Are you an artist, too?
As she sits in a gallery in Athens, gazing at a glorious painting by one of Greece's most prestigious artists, Cassie, a sculptor from Boston, is approached and spoken to by an attractive Greek man. He is Alex, brewer and maker of guitars. He offers to show her his Greece, and gently they fall in love. But before he is able to propose, an attack parts them leaving both to rebuild their lives without the other.
Denise Kahn writes with such elegance and beauty and her books are filled with music, both in her words and in sound inserted between the text. The story is short but filled with exquisite detail, colours, tastes and a sense of place. Slow paced yet very satisfying. In a word, gorgeous. She is also the narrator of this story and she reads impeccably, perfectly matching the text, and her voicings of her male and female protagonists is clearly differentiated and appropriate. Like the honey one of her characters seperately from the comb in the latter part of the story.
I discovered the works of Ms.Kahn only recently so, when I saw Guitar Woman listed, I immediately requested it and was very fortunate to be gifted a complementary copy via F.A.F.Y. Thank you so much. Listening was like unwrapping a perfect little gift. Not for everyone, perhaps. The romance is love, not sex and there is very little violence. But if beauty and an exploration of some of the sights of Greece appeal, this is definitely a book for you.

A Greek romance and history all wrapped up in a wonderful narrative a great holiday read. Especially good if you have ever visited Athens as you can picture all the places in your minds eye as you read
