Book DescriptionThis book is the story of Emma Tennant's parent's house, Rovinia, set above the bay in Corfu where legend has it Ulysses was shipwrecked and found by Nausicaa, daughter of King Alcinous. It is also the story of people like Maria, a miraculous cook and the presiding spirit of the house, and her husband, Thodoros, and of the inhabitants of the local village, high on the hill above the bay.Full of color and contrast, "A House in Corfu" shows the huge changes in island life since the time of the Tennants' arrival, and celebrates, equally, the joy of belonging to a timeless world: the world of vine, olive, and sea.

Black Marina, Paperback (November 2011)
Holly Baker, an English woman, came to St James during her carefree days of bar-hopping in the 1960s. Somehow she never managed to get away. Now, her loyalties fluctuating, she is caught up in the advanced stages of a drama both personal and political - and which embodies the conflicts inherent in this small, dangerously placed society.
