Who doesn't want to sit at dusk on a veranda as the sun, in an orange sky, sinks behind distant islands, each full of mythic echoes? That was the aspiration of writer Bob St. John and his wife Sandy as they set out to find a perfect place to escape the modern frenzy--a Greek villa!
The Fates bring them to Paros, a brilliantly lit, pristine island in the Aegean, a place of traditional white houses and chapels, whose shutters and doors are sea blue. Once there they search for the envisioned Greek villa, a special place they already sense in their hearts, calling them onward.
Awaiting them is enchanting House No. 5 and so much more: friendships, dreamers abroad, wise elders, and modern-day embodiments of the heroic Greek Spirit. The Fates seem ever to indulge the couple as they travel year after year, season after seaon, to the magic that is House No. 5.
