It was to this unspoilt archipelago that Michael Carroll sailed. But his dream of travelling where the wind took him, changed when he landed on Skopelos. There, a chance meeting with the charismatic Vangeli led to him buying a piece of land on a remote cove, once the site of an ancient city and the perfect harbour for Astarte.So unfolds the story of Carroll’s growing attachment to Skopelos as he sets down roots and makes it his home. Engaging and vividly-described, An Island in Greece is a sun-drenched tale of a life full of simple pleasures, governed by the seasons, the tides and the wind- the story of a traveller who finally arrived and a unique homage to the island that harbored him.
