Effrosyni Moschoudi was born and raised in Athens, Greece. As a child, she loved to sit alone in her garden scribbling rhymes about flowers, butterflies and ants. Today, she writes stories for the romantic at heart. Her debut novel, The Necklace of Goddess Athena, won a silver medal in the 2017 International Book Awards of Readers' Favorite. Her historical romance, The Ebb, is an ABNA Q-Finalist. She lives in a quaint seaside town near Athens but her mind forever drifts to her beloved Greek island of Corfu.

An utterly cinematographic second-chance romance set in the Wild West.

This book is utterly cinematographic. It took me straight to the Wild West, to the time of the pioneers who once rushed there to claim a plot of land and start a new life. The book

“There were nights for instance, especially in August, where the view of the full moon from the top of the Acropolis hill or from a high terrace could steal your breath away. The moon would slide over the clouds like a seducing princess dressed in her finest silvery silk. And the sky would be full of stars that trembled feebly, like servants that bowed before her. During those nights under the light of the August full moon, the city of Athens would become an enchanted kingdom that slept lazily under the sweet light of its ethereal mistress.”
Effrosyni Moschoudi, The Necklace of Goddess Athena

“People don’t often mention God these days. God has become a taboo subject that you only refer to when heartache takes over your life. The rest of the time the idea of God lies dormant in people’s minds, like a pack of medication in a dark drawer.”
Effrosyni Moschoudi, The Necklace of Goddess Athena

“Across the distance, the Acropolis museum cradled within its protective walls its legendary treasures, lulling them to a peaceful sleep under the eerie light from the heavens. Yet, through the large window, the five Caryatids stood alert on their strong platform. The ageless maidens with the long braided hair down their backs remained awake even at this hour gazing across to the Acropolis, full of nostalgia for their sacred home. Inside their marble chests, they nurtured as always, precious hope for the return of their long lost sister.”
