    Review quote
    "It's All Greek to Me! is John Mole's gentle tale of converting a stone ruin into a family home on the island of Evia, a fabulous insight into Hellenic village life." Book of the Week, Daily Express "Anecdotes come thick and fast... Mole's affable style suits the subject, and his self-deprecatory tone is a bonus." The Good Book Guide "John Mole wirtes with clarity, honesty and humour...whether you are new to the country or share Mole's passion for all things Greek, this book offers an entertaining glimpse of life in rural Greece." Saga Travellers News "It's All Greek to Me! represents travel writing at its best. Mole's descriptions of the people and places he encounters do for Greece what Peter Mayle did for France in his bestselling A Year in Provence and Frances Mayes for Italy in Under the Tuscan Sun." www.greeceshops.com"
