This book is the story of Emma Tennant's parent's house, Rovinia, set above the bay in Corfu where legend has it Ulysses was shipwrecked and found by Nausicaa, daughter of King Alcinous. It is also the story of people like Maria, a miraculous cook and the presiding spirit of the house, and her husband, Thodoros, and of the inhabitants of the local village, high on the hill above the bay.
Full of color and contrast, A House in Corfu shows the huge changes in island life since the time of the Tennants' arrival, and celebrates, equally, the joy of belonging to a timeless world: the world of vine, olive, and sea.
About the Author: Emma Tennant's previous books include Sylvia and Ted, The Bad Sister, Two Women of London, Faustine, Strangers: A Family Romance, Burnt Diaries, and Pemberley, a sequel to Pride and Prejudice. She lived in London until her death in 2017.
