The Greek Persuasion By Kimberly K. Robeson






⭐⭐☆ 

A mid-life coming-of-age is an interesting, and very, very real, situation. Robeson takes this unusual period and explores the mind and heart of a woman in her thirties who is discovering herself.

Thair is 31 and her boyfriend has just broken up with her. She retreats to her safe place, which happens to be a small Greek island. As a part of her therapy, she starts writing what she calls ‘stories’ but is actually a meandering diary of recollections about her beloved grandmother, mother and later, herself.

Thair is obsessed with the old Greek mythological story of everyone having a soulmate and her life is a search for that one person who completes her. Spread across five years of self-exploration, Thair discovers her sexuality (she could be bisexual or pansexual) and finally finds love. 

The writing is gentle and at times meandering, but surprisingly, somewhere after a third of the book, became engrossing. There is a lot of explorations of concepts, ideas and feelings. Though Thair is searching for romance, the whole romance by itself is not the main focus – the focus is Thair’s journey.

This is a slow, almost introspective read for a lazy downtime.
