Overview

Have you ever dreamed about dumping everything and leaving the humdrum of urban living for a new life of blue skies, warm sunshine and sparkling seas?


For Anthony and Ivana Stancomb, the decision to move from Fulham to Vis, the remotest island off the coast of Croatia, was easy, but fitting in with the locals was one of the hardest things they had ever had to do.


Faced with a language barrier and sceptical locals, Anthony and Ivana tackle risky boats, fierce grandmothers, star-cross'd lovers and the establishment of Croatia's first ever cricket team. Little by little our undaunted couple became islanders in their own right, and a few hearts are melted along the way.


With the Adriatic Sea as its backdrop, Under a Croatian Sun takes the reader on a journey from the grey concrete of London to a ramshackle village in Croatia - a village proudly defined by its tragic history, unique caf culture, fishing and potent alcohol.


This warming account of following your heart shows how, with a bit of courage and an open mind, home is wherever you make it.
