The Lion and the Nurse
by Patty Apostolides

This love story is about Cassiani, a nurse, who returns to the Greek island of Kos, to help her ailing mother. Her mother is a widow, who takes care of a rich woman on the island, Mrs. Lukas. Rich descriptions of the island where Hippocrates taught abound in this story. Cassiani is talked into also nursing Mrs. Lukas, who is matchmaking her handsome nephew Leo, to the doctor's daughter. Meanwhile, Cassiani's mother is trying to match make Cassiani with Leo. Among this hilarious matchmaking comedy, Cassiani inevitably falls in love with Leo. Experienced in saving other people's lives, she witnesses her own near-death experience, and is saved by the power of love.
