In 2005, author Barbara Unkovic visited Croatia where members of her family had been living for the last seven generations. On the island of Korčula, the original home of her father's family, she discovered her soul and began a new life in a peaceful, unspoiled paradise on the edge of the Adriatic Sea.Weeds in the Garden of Eden is a rich, absorbing account of her purchase of a 200 year old, uninhabited stone house in the timeless village of Račisce; seasonal life amongst the lush vineyards and olive groves and her encounters with the tainted Croatian bureaucratic system in a land where the volatile inhabitants have spent the last 800 years fighting to gain independence.Overflowing with humour, passion and reality, Weeds in the Garden of Eden paints a picture as brilliantly blue as the Adriatic Sea. However, things are not always as romantic as they seem in the small traditional Croatian fishing village. Interfamilial feuds, superstition and long memories all create currents of unrest in this apparent paradise.
