'Lovely's Island' is a wonderful odyssey of finding love and discovering one's self. The characters are placed in the idyllic setting of the Cyclades, as they are yachting the Aegean Sea. The heroes' lives change during a summer vacation in Greece, where a series of unexpected events occur. Everyone, either keeps a secret, or maintains an undisclosed past. However, in the book 'Lovely's Island', no secret can be kept in the dark forever; the need to share the truth persists. Grasp the opportunity to live the passion and the mystery of the Cyclades, and allow the narrators to trigger your need for some personal soul searching. What happens when Sandra, Christopher, Ricardo, Maria, Juliana, Hermes, Petros, Marios, Agapi, Babo and Lovely get to know each other better? The reader may even learn from their mistakes, as Dr. Young tries to improve the angle of their perception. The author, a Greek-American, instills the many graces of Greece in the reader. As Greece is the founder of the Hellenic term 'philoxenia' (=hospitality), one successfully feels invited to enjoy this hospitable literary home of summer thrill. Let the pages guide you through an endless vivid paradise of finger-licking Greek cuisine, historic tradition, azure geography, pristine coastlines, cosmopolitan beaches, sensational sunsets, salty aromas, and festive music, so as to portray the true essence of the region. A dramatic twist will change the sequence of events, as fate will unpredictably play its role in intertwining the characters' destinies. Evidently, a perplexity of psychologies and behaviors unravel a tinge of mystery, a dash of adventure, a rush of romance, and a heated passion in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea. Specifically, Sandra starts the tale as an American teenager, where she takes a cruise to the Greek islands, accompanied by her aunt and uncle. Little does she know that this trip will change her destiny altogether. As they say, 'love is so strong it can even move mountains.' The
