The Nifi by Linda Fagioli-Katsiotas



Description

The Nifi opens in 1983 in the remote Greek village of Margariti where the narrator, a young American woman who speaks no Greek, finds herself. 

A month before, back in a New York suburb, she had impulsively married a Greek immigrant from a local restaurant and had agreed to accompany him back to his village for an undefined period of time.

The village is in the poorest area of Greece and the narrator must acclimate to a countryside lifestyle, no running water and paralyzing culture shock.

Her new mother-in-law, Chevi, welcomes her and through her son, is able to convey the heartache and betrayals of her life, slowly emerging as a heroine in a heart-wrenching tale.

This story is rich in the culture and traditions of one small valley and the events that defined generations on both sides of the Atlantic. It will leave you with an unquenchable yearning for more!
