Eleni

I may indeed be the last person in the world who has a connection with Greece (Greek wife) and who has only now read the book “Eleni” by Nicholas Gage. What a page-turner! Had I only read this book before! A couple of weeks ago, we spent a few days in the area of Ioannina. Had I known about Eleni then, I would have definitely visited the village of Lia where the action took place.

Why do I mention this here? Because I found the following beautiful phrase in this book, spoken by – I believe it was – Eleni’s father:

“Any fool can throw a stone into the sea, but once he does, a hundred wise men can’t pull it out!”

Perhaps some readers will understand why I am quoting this here.
