When The Sun Goes Down - Island Stories by Maria Strani-Potts (28 Nov 2012)

Product Description

This powerful and varied collection of short stories, by the author of the novel The Cat of Portovecchio, Corfu Tales, captures the atmosphere and distinctive character of several different islands in the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.

Swimming in Bermuda concerns an encounter between two women. A foreign visitor meets a local Bermudian woman. Tragic events from the past are gradually revealed.
Rehearsing I Do is an affectionate comic sketch set on Ile de Ré, a small French island off the Atlantic coast, opposite La Rochelle.

The Exploitation of Panorea is a hard-hitting tale about the environment and the  ruthless exploitation of an island in the Ionian Sea.

On the Beach is another intense and dramatic Ionian Island story. Five women enjoying their regular evening ouzo are confronted by the sight of a dead body floating in the sea.
