"This book will make you laugh and cry and laugh again. I didn't want it to end."—Emma Woolf, author of An Apple a Day

The Best Gifts in Life are the Gifts We Give Ourselves...

Eat Pray Love meets My Big Fat Greek Wedding with a sprinkling of Mamma Mia in this unforgettable journey from heartbreak to happiness. One winter, when her love life falls apart, Jennifer Barclay decides on Three Gifts to Self. One and Two are reducing her workload and staying away from relationships. The Third is a month alone on a tiny, wild Greek island. It’s a chance to find another kind of contentment, one that comes from holding an octopus in your hands. She decides to stay longer, but just when everything is falling into place again, the strangest thing happens…

"Barclay’s beautiful memoir recalls both Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love (2006) and the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding, providing glimpses into the lives of people in a small Greek village and the process of healing from a broken heart."—Booklist

"Barclay's beautiful memoir recalls both Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love (2006) and the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding, providing glimpses into the lives of people in a small Greek village and the process of healing from a broken heart." — Booklist
"Five honey dipped stars...prepare to get hungry with a need to travel (or Google Greece to daydream). This is a perfect book for lounging on the beach, or for helping you pretend that you are during the winter. Fans of books like Eat, Pray, Love and Karma Gone Bad ought to check this out." — Bitches n Prose
"Jennifer speaks to women everywhere in this memoir. How many of us I have dreamed of giving everything up to run away to a deserted island? After reading this book, maybe my trip isn't as far fetched as I thought" — Cayocosta72
"Captured with beautiful words that paint a serene picture of life in Greece. If you also want to fall in love with Greece, I highly recommend Falling in Honey: How a Tiny Greek Island Stole My Heart." — Jetsetera
"They say Eat Pray Love is the epitome of what engaging memoir writing should be... they obviously hadn't read Falling In Honey!...Raw, poignant, so very honest it makes you reel because you just don't expect people to be so honest and baring their soul out like this in 'public', this read captivated me...if there's one book I were to recommend as THE book of 2014, it would be Falling In Honey. " — Zee Monodee
"There are twists and turns aplenty in this book, and while the course of love is not always sweet, the honey overtones of a magical island persist." — Food & Travel
"I got totally sucked into the simplicity and mystique of the tiny Greek Island of Tilos. Every time I sat down and opened it I felt like I was on vacation...Thank you Jennifer Barclay, for transporting me across the country and igniting an excitement to one day visit this tiny island that just months ago I had never heard of! " — Lipstick and Leopard Print
"Jennifer is a very evocative writer you can almost smell the honey, the salty sea, the goats. Along with the evocative smells the reader get a warts and all summary of some disastrous relationships that drives her to the very edge - and each time it is Greece in general and Tilos in particular that brings her back and heals her mental wounds." — Sally From Oz
"The descriptions of Tilos are lovely, and her experiences there are generally fun...it is a pleasant and easy read and would be ideal for taking away on a holiday." — The Garden Window
