I AM SO INTO THIS GREEK VILLAGE SERIES! ANOTHER GREAT READ! THIS ONE WAS MORE ABOUT STELLA, THE OWNER OF THE OUZERI. SHE IS A HARD WORKING WOMAN WHO HIRES A BRITISH GIRL FOR THE SUMMER. STELLA BEGINS TO QUESTION HOW HER LIFE HAS BECOME WHAT IT IS – HER HUSBAND TREATS HER HORRIBLY AND HAS BEGUN STEALING FROM THE TILL. BUT, WHEN HER HUSBAND STARTS TO BEAT HER, THE VILLAGE WOMEN COME TOGETHER TO SET HIM STRAIGHT. I DID NOT READ THE SERIES IN ANY ORDER, BUT I DO BELIEVE, SADLY, THAT THIS IS THE LAST…
Cross with her father, Abby, 17, boards a flight to Greece, but gets hopelessly lost and ends up in the wrong village.
Alone, with very little money, no Greek and no way to contact her friend Jackie, who has lined up a bar job for her, Abby realises she has to stand on her own two feet for the first time…
She meets Stella, who runs the local ouzeri — a rough and ready eatery were farmers gather to drink and take refuge from their domestic lives.
Stella does not need a naive young English girl hanging around, and the ouzeri is not the glamorous bar that Abby had bargained for.
But when events throw them together, the situation brings to the boil tensions that have been brewing for years, the ripples drawing in other people in the village, threatening Abby’s ability to ever leave, culminating in shocking unforeseen events and the uncovering of dark secrets that change peoples’ thinking about themselves and others permanently.
