Homer's Where the Heart Is
By

Rating
Book 2 of the Peloponnese series Homer's Where The Heart Is continues the story where the acclaimed first travel memoir (Things Can Only Get Feta) left off. Two journalists and their crazy terrier are in the second year of their riotous adventure, living in the Mani region of southern Greece, and sharing an olive grove with their new Greek landlords. The location seems perfect, apart from Greeks on the edge, a gun-toting neighbour and a she-wolf with a shady past. But the couple soon face their biggest challenge yet, as they are pulled into the chaos of the country's worsening economic crisis - along with some of the original village characters from Feta - as Greece faces a disastrous exit from the eurozone. This candid and humorous memoir is also the story of the author's lifelong passion for Greece and its people. Woven into the narrative is Marjory's back story from another dark time, during the military dictatorship in the 1970s in Athens. It reveals as much about Greece as it does about her own personal journey. This edition contains the author's own photographs of southern Greece and some of the places mentioned in the book. REVIEWS "Marjory is a skilled wordsmith who has combined her journalistic expertise and story-telling flair to create a highly laudable sequel to Things Can Only Get Feta." - Peter Kerr, best- selling author of Snowball Oranges "Through her stories, sentiments and humor, we see and feel her love for Greece. Put this at the top of your summer reading list." - Maria A. Karamitsos, Founder and Editor, WindyCity Greek, Chicago "Beautifully written, at times funny and always insightful. What more could you ask." - Richard Clark, author of the Greek Notebook series "Marjory takes us on an odyssey with mind, heart and great skill. I loved reading this book." - Pamela Jane Rogers, author of Greekscapes. "Another wonderful book by Marjory McGinn. The ending tugged at my heart." - Linda Fagioli-Katsiotas, author of Greek memoir, The Nifi. "Beautifully written. Her historic insight gives this book a gravitas far beyond its genre without taking anything away from a charming read." - Anthony Hooper, author of The Glass Lie. "A fascinating and heartwarming memoir. I absolutely loved this book and had a huge lump in my throat at the end of it." - Valerie Poore, author of Watery Ways.
