“I want you to be mine. I can’t stand sharing you anymore. If I can’t have you to myself, then I’d rather not have you at all.”
Her tone was apologetic, her words simple and ordinary. However no woman had ever dared utter such a thing until that moment.. She had dared, however. She, the girl with the snail.

She arrived at Athens Elliniko airport from London on March 26th, 1969. In her hands she held a small, hurt snail. And from there, always holding the little snail tightly protected in her hand, she went to Matala. A place where she had been promised she would find a paradise of nature. A paradise for hippies. In Matala, the paradise of freedom. It was also paradise for Jonnie Mitchell and for Harry. Pre-eminently for Harry.. She remained there until May ’69, waiting, along with hippies from all over the word, the summer of love. But that summer never came… for that May what happened, happened.

Penelope Kourtzi’s novel tells of a girl who believed that the greatest freedom of the heart is to love and be loved, and, about a boy who couldn’t fall in love. It is about Matala, the most carefree beach in the world… a beach under the unique Cretan sun, with the African wind blowing across the Libyan Sea and taking along with it all of society’s small-minded apprehensions and affairs.
