Santrauka: Written partly in diary form and supplemented by letters home, In the Land of Aphrodite tells of the joys and vicissitudes of Libby Rowan-Moorhouses new and very different life when she and her husband move to Cyprus. Written in a clear, fluid style, In the Land of Aphrodite describes the limitless hospitality and communal life in a Cypriot village. Putting her experiences in context, Libby Rowan-Moorhouse outlines the history of Cyprus and its troubles. She gives vivid descriptions of the scenery and wildlife and provides some delightful illustrations. It all adds up to a lively entertaining read about an enchanting but unsettled place. About the Author: Libby Rowan-Moorhouse married in England and grew interested in human rights, first with the plight of Tibetan refugees.
