Greekscapes – Pamela Jane Rogers

Greekscapes – Pamela Jane Rogers

greekscapes-paperback

Paperback

Kindle Edition

As her married life dissolves into rivers of remorse, Pamela’s paintings impregnate the seed of her most creative self. Her rebirth requires searching and releasing  painful memories, yet that also leads her to a brilliant painting mentor. By a twist of fate, her most profound journey begins after a swim in the Aegean Sea and an extraordinary epiphany. She is inspired to relaunch her life’s journey in art.…and try to resurrect her marriage.
Seven years of inner and outer journeys culminate in immense loss and only moderate professional success. After all that transpires – the lies, racism, abuse and the death  – can she forgive the past and have faith in her soul’s yearning? Does she have the strength to move to a foreign country alone? Of course, most everyone agrees that it’s irrational for a middle-aged woman, on her own with minimal resources, to realize her dreams…but isn’t it worth a try?

Review

This book is an inspiration to all and underlines the fact that we can all, with help, fulfill our potential – wherever we are. 
Greekscapes is a gem – a one-of-a-kind, life-affirming soul search through murky seas and sunshine, impossible choices and destiny, bravery and friendship. Whatever your journey in life, there’s a lesson to be learned here about following your heart. GeorgiaB123
A personal literary journey through adversity to fulfilment is a difficult tightrope to walk without falling into the abyss of self-obsession…it is an artist’s eye she has brought to her writing, self aware enough to paint an honest picture in words and generous enough to share insights into her personal adventure through the confident brushstrokes of her storytelling. Ultimately inspiring. A book to savour.  Richard Clark

A warm, wise, perceptive book, the story of a painter’s willingness and courage to follow where life beckons.

I‘ve Escaped to Greece!

This is a jewel of a book and I loved it.  This is not just a fluffy “vacation to Greece” book. The author does much soul searching both before her move and during her life there. Thank you for sharing. Cheryl
About Pamela From Amazon

1948 was the year I was born in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. I’m a visual artist. After I graduated from UNC-G and married, taught art and then worked in interior design, I also hoped to become a mom. The year 1990 found me moving alone to a Greek island, and I’ve been there ever since, painting my bliss, keeping journals and writing.

GREEKSCAPES Journeys with an Artist is my memoir, edited by Bryony Sutherland. The Kindle version has a different cover, but it’s the same read.

I also offer a Special Edition (coffee table book) – GREEKSCAPES ILLUSTRATED JOURNEYS WITH AN ARTIST – which includes 40 of my paintings through the years, as many readers have requested. The Kindle IllUSTRATED version has a different cover, and offers 100 paintings. This edition was also chosen a Best of Expat Nonfiction for 2015 by thedisplacednation.com.

My full biography and some of my work can be seen on my website: – my blog   – and more about my continuing love affair with Greece may be found in this interview of July 2016 –

 

Yeia Mas! (Good health to all, cheers!)
