A Greek Promise is an inspiring account of how God still calls ordinary people to do extraordinary things. The many miraculous events are intertwined with endearing descriptions of the delights of Greek life that have produced popular Greek based books by other authors. This unusual combination sets the scene for this true story, providing a delightful adventure for believers and sceptics alike. Courage, faith, compassion and a child-like dependence on God's provision form the backdrop to this enchanting Greek island, modern day epistle. The story relates the most amazing events which defy any explanation other than that they were determined and controlled by the actions of an Almighty God. The first book in this Greek Life series, To Greece and the Distant Islands, relates the fascinating events which first led an English business woman in her late thirties, to leave home and move to live a simple life in Greece on the island of Paros. Many of the readers of that book asked, "But then what happened?" It is in answer to this question that this second book has been written including events up to the present day. The book is an inspiring Christian biography which includes many outstanding miracles of healing and God's provision.

Author Biography

Barbara graduated from Manchester University in 1973, with a degree in computing and management science. For many years she pursued a successful career in computing with international banks and multinational companies. While on holiday in the Greek Islands she had a dramatic, life changing experience. This resulted in her leaving her work in England at the age of thirty-seven, to embark on a journey of faith living on the Greek island of Paros. Her life in Greece has provided her with many hilarious Greek experiences, knowledge of the local Greek culture and a wealth of miracles of provision, supernatural guidance and healings. Initially living alone, she later met and married her Belgian husband. Together they built their home close to the beach which became a lighthouse to people of many nationalities. Many lives have been touched through their weekly meetings. Barbara has been living on the island of Paros for more than twenty five years. She lives an extraordinary life in a simple island setting.
