Escape to the sunlight and colour of a wild island in the south Aegean.

When Jennifer moves alone into the Honey Factory on a tiny Greek island, bringing a laptop, her hiking boots and plans for a peaceful life, she has no idea what surprises are in store.

Diving into an exciting new life with a fisherman, she learns something every day. Joining the dancing at local festivals and helping at a café on the beach, surviving winter storms and finding a canine companion, she is faced with both challenges and rewards, and discovers that to become an island woman she must live small and think big.

A seductive evocation of Greek island life and an honest exploration of what it means to try to live differently. An Octopus in My Ouzo is about diving into the unknown and staying afloat, even when the enticing blue waters of the Aegean become clouded and choppy. - Lizzie Enfield

Romantic, sun-drenched and mouth-watering... a true feast for the senses.' - Emma Woolf

Poetic, touching, enlightening: Jennifer's very personal journey into Greece's deep heartland will give even the most couch-bound armchair traveller itchy feet.' - Anne Zouroudi

This book has re-awakened my love of travel writing, and for that I can only thank Jennifer Barclay. - Rachel’s Random Reads Blog
