    Poignant, humane, and charming.  I think once you visit the Greek Village the first time, you'll be captivated by its inhabitants forever.

    Much in the way the lovely people of Gaborone, Botswana steal into your heart.

    From my Book Journal:

    Juliet is an Englishwoman who, after her nuclear family has both disintegrated and moved on into its adult phase, has bought a rundown home on an island in Greece.  Her need for a yardman leads her to employ Aaman, an illegal Pakistani worker who wants to earn his share of the funds his village needs to buy a tractor.  To do this, he has left his wife behind and traveled at great risk to Greece where he lives in the demi-light of all illegal workers.  This unlikely pair forms a close friendship that extends well beyond the traditional borders of worker and employer. . .
    And I'll stop there w/o a hint of spoilers.

    The second installment is Black Butterflies.
