Good Story and Characters
Greek Millionaire, Unruly Wife - Sun Chara

Michalis said he would take the model. Julia had cost Michalis a marriage and a billion dollars in a Tokyo deal gone wrong. Julia had shredded Michalis’s heart cost him his pride,. Applause broke out for Julia it splintered Michalis’s thoughts and spiked his fury…. His passion for revenge. Her untimely exit had rocked Michalis’s sphere and his bank account . Julia had nearly bankrupted him. Michalis had put everything on hold to search for Julia and to clean up the legal mess his uncle ‘s amour had created when she’d charmed -scammed the old guy into signing away half the Leonadis fortune. The fortune Michalis had slaved over years to amass. When he found out Julia was living it up in Paris., he had shut her out and scrambled out to save his business and stay afloat he would waste no more time on her. Michalis liked everything simple and Julia was anything but simple. He likes to keep his focus razor sharp, his mind alert his instinct in play and a quantum leap over his competition. This had helped Michalis years ago when he had taken over his uncle's run down tourist boat rentals in Athens   and built it into a mega international shipping line Michalis had given Julia the world and at the first sign of rough waters she had run she’d jumped ship and created a tidal wave of confusion. In three months Julia’s creams had soured in her fantastic marriage to the Greek millionaire fractured but Julia hadn’t left empty handed. If Chach hadn’t been on this fashion show she would not have been able to make rent. At twenty eight and had been away from the fashion circuit for a year and model opportunities were few and far between . What was Michalis doing here after a year of silence. Michalis the man who she once loved and now hated. What did he want and know Julia had come home one day and found Michalis fresh from a shower than a woman appeared in a skinny negligee. Julia said “ you’ve been caught”. Julia never got to tell Michalis she was pregnant and since she had left she had a daughter and named her Amy. Julia met Michalis and she reminded herself she couldn’t let him see that he still affected her , too dangerous for Julia’s mind , emotions, and world. She remain immune to his charm, his magnetism, and his potent sexuality. Michalis wants Julia and Amy to come to Athens for one month and he could get to know his daughter but he can also use Julia for his needs. Julia had been abandoned as a child and she would never do that to her own child. Amy was now three months old. Then Michalis takes Julia on the yacht for  the weekend. They got caught in a storm , damage was done to the boat and they had to swim to Mermaids Grotto. There was a hole in the yacht now. They did make it to the grotto.

I enjoyed this story. It was a very good read. It did drag a little for me, but not enough to really get in the way. I love how Julia loved Amy and wasn’t going to let Michalis take their daughter from her no matter what she had to do. I was also happy it was proven to Julia Michalis did not cheat on her. Julia’s fear of abandonment had colored her thinking. I was happy for Julia and Michalis they deserved to be happy and a family with Amy and the past to be put behind them. I love the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.

Review For: Greek Millionaire, Unruly Wife by Sun Chara
Greek Millionaire, Unruly Wife - Sun Chara

'Greek Millionaire, Unruly Wife' by Sun Chara is the story of Michalis and Julia.
Julia up and left Michalis after she caught him with what she thought was another women. Now a year later she Michalis has found her and wants her back for a few months...which he blackmails her to do so. Julia goes forward with being with him but only agrees for One month. Michalis is angry with Julia for leaving him and also causing him a great loss of money.
So Julia and Michalis are both l living with a misunderstanding of each other.
This was a really great 'mental break' read for me and so I had to read it to the end in one sitting!

Sailing the Wine-Dark Sea (Hinges of History #4)
Sailing the Wine-Dark Sea: Why the Greeks Matter - Thomas Cahill

The foundations of what we call Western culture today seemingly sprung from one place, Greece, yet that is not the entire truth.  Sailing the Wine-Dark Sea, the fourth volume of Thomas Cahill’s Hinges of History, examines and explains the structure of Greek society and ideas as well as the reasons why it has permeated so much of what we know of Western culture.  But Cahill’s answer to why the Greeks matter is two-fold.

 

Over the course of 264 pages of text, Cahill looks at all the features of Greek culture that made them so different from other ancient cultures.  Through the study of Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey, Cahill examined the Greek’s view of war and honor in their grand war epic then how the same man expressed how the Greek’s expressed their feelings.  The contradiction of the Homeric works is part of a larger theme that Cahill explores in Greek poetry beyond Homer, politicians and playwrights, philosophers, and artists.  Throughout each chapter, Cahill examines what the Greeks did differently than anyone else as well as relate examples that many will know.  Yet Cahill reveals that as time went on the Greeks own culture started to swallow itself until stabilized by the Romans who were without the Greek imagination and then merged with newly developing Christian religion that used Greek words to explain its beliefs to a wider world; this synthesis of the Greco-Roman world and Judeo-Christian tradition is what created Western thought and society that we know today.

 

Cahill’s analysis and themes are for the general reader very through-provoking, but even for someone not well versed in overall Greek scholarship there seems to be something missing in this book.  Just in comparing previous and upcoming volumes of Cahill’s own series, this book seems really short for one covering one of the two big parts of Western Civilization.  Aside from the two chapters focused around the Homeric epics, all the other chapters seemed to be less than they could be not only in examples but also in giving connections in relevance for the reader today.

 

For the Western society in general, the Greeks are remembered for their myths, magnificent ruins, and democracy.  Thomas Cahill’s Sailing the Wine-Dark Sea does reveal that ancient Greece was more than that and why a culture millennia old matters to us today.  While not perfect, this book is at least a good read for the general reader which may be what Cahill is aiming for but for those more well read it feels lacking once finished.
