Description

A bittersweet yet heartwarming travel memoir about a woman who heals her broken heart and rediscovers herself while living on a tiny island in Greece.

Eat Pray Love meets My Big Fat Greek Wedding with a sprinkling of Mamma Mia in this unforgettable journey from heartbreak to happiness. One winter, when her love life falls apart, Jennifer Barclay decides on Three Gifts to Self. One and Two are reducing her workload and staying away from relationships. The Third is to travel to a wild Greek island--alone--for one month. It's a chance to find another kind of contentment, one that comes from holding an octopus in your hands. She decides to stay longer, but just when everything is falling into place again, the strangest thing happens...

Praise for Falling in Honey:

This book will make you laugh and cry and laugh again. I didn't want it to end.--Emma Woolf, author of An Apple a Day

A lovely read, made me want to run away to a Greek island.--Helena Frith Powell, author of All You Need to Be Impossibly French

Five honey dipped stars...prepare to get hungry with a need to travel. This is a perfect book for lounging on the beach, or for helping you pretend that you are during the winter.--Bitches n Prose

Barclay's beautiful memoir recalls both Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love and the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding, providing glimpses into the lives of people in a small Greek village and the process of healing from a broken heart.--Booklist
