Has Anyone Read This Book?

03 June 2006 - 04:00 PM

I am just reading a new book called 'The Island' written by Victoria Heslop and just wondered if any other members here have read it ? This wonderful book tells the story of an English girl tracing back her family history through her Cretan mother which reveals that the leper colony on Spinalonga just off the North East Coast near Elounda played a very big part in their lives. I am only halfway through but what an incredibly moving story this is , having been on a trip to the island myself and visiting this area a few times It makes the book even better as I can see it all happening as I read. I will be In Hersonissos for a week next Friday and am very much looking forward to visiting again. Highly recommended read , Toni.

Hi,a friend of mine will be travelling to Crete soon with her young children and needs to save space in those suitcases but is worried that she will not be able to get these things there,can anyone help please? They are HUGGIES NAPPIES and COW & GATE FORMULA BABY MILK, she is staying in RETHYMNON in Creta Star (Scaletta Beach area) so if anyone can tell us of any local supermarkets stocking these items it would save her a lot of hassle and room , any information would be very gratefully received,thanks,regards,Toni. :D
