When her mother's latest relationship threatens to turn her orderly world upside down, Grace Hamilton sets off to Greece to rescue her. There, she is caught up in a battle between village politics and some very contemporary "goddesses", whilst like the lotus eaters of ancient mythology, a handsome poet almost makes her lose her reason.
Seduced by the heat and languor of a Greek summer into shedding her inhibitions, Grace at last discovers the truth about herself as well as about the father she has never known.
Shirley Valentine meets k.d. lang!
