Publisher's Summary

'I came here looking for some kind of happiness. I think it might be the cleverest thing I have ever done.'
Shirley Valentine meets My Big Fat Greek Wedding meets Eat, Pray, Love, with a good sprinkling of Mamma Mia.
One difficult winter when her love life falls apart (and so does she), Jen decides on Three Gifts to Self. Gift One and Two are reducing her workload and staying away from relationships for a while. Gift Three, the most important, is a month alone on a tiny, wild Greek island. It's a chance to find another kind of contentment: one that comes from the sun and the sea, from the aroma of herbs on the mountains and holding an octopus in your hands.
Falling in Honey is an honest, mouth-watering mix of comedy and romance, and an unforgettable journey from heartbreak to happiness.
Jennifer Barclay grew up in a village on the edge of the Pennines and studied at Oxford before moving to Athens; then Canada and France, with travels in Guyana and South Korea, and after a few years back in England ended up in a village again - this time in Greece.


What the Critics Say

"For anyone who's ever been unlucky - or lucky - in love, this book will make you laugh and cry and then laugh again. Against the backdrop of her idyllic Greek island, Falling in Honey is the story of one woman's odyssey to find happiness with or without the man of her dreams. I didn't want it to end..." (Emma Woolf)
"Made me want to run away to a Greek island." (Helena Frith Powell)
"Captures the gentle pace of island life with great charm. A joy to read." (Harry Bucknall)
'Unlucky in love? If you can't escape to an idyllic Greek island Falling in Honey is the next best thing.' John Mole

Lovely descriptions but missing something

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.
