December’s Book of the Month

Drum roll please!

December’s Book of the Month is THE SIFNOS CHRONICLES by Sharon Blomfield.



Quirky and beguiling, often unwittingly funny, and always so utterly kind, the people of the Greek island of Sifnos charm and fascinate. They roar past on motorbikes with whole families squeezed on top, plus whatever earthly goods they can manage to hold on to. They live their lives in the open, their shouts, their squabbles, and their laughter in plain view of anyone who takes the time to notice. Open-hearted and spontaneous, they ply strangers with countless gifts…
… and, impromptu, they invite a passing traveller to their wedding. Filled with encounters and observation, gentle humour, and more than one unforeseeable twist, The Sifnos Chronicles is a narrative tale that takes readers along on this traveller’s journey through whitewashed alleys, into homey tavernas, across ancient marbled paths through the hills, and ultimately into the heart of this magical isle.


The book is available in paperback and on kindle from Amazon worldwide and also from Sharon’s website

    Now that is what I call a great review. It sounds like a very interesting book. I translate losely from Greek: ‘a shoe from your own homeland’ type of book; ie. it fits like a glove for any readers with Greek ancestry. And, judging by the review, all readers from all nationalities will be thoroughly entertained.
