Bookj Review - A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing

The long-awaited sequel to Weeds in the Garden of Eden, A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing, by Barbara Unković, has been released.
Barbara is a keen and perceptive observer of the human condition and a past winner of the Global Short Story Competition.

This book is packed with her observations on life in Croatia. Shortly after the new millennium began, Barbara and her husband Denis left Australia’s Sunshine Coast for 
the picturesque village of Račće on the small island of Korcula.
After seven years, the couple no longer live in Ra
čće, and this book explains why they chose to move on, and also offers the reader a cautionary tale of what to expect in any so-called Paradise.
It chronicles their struggles with local politics and local conflicts before eventually deciding, regretfully, to leave.

It’s an enjoyable read, packed with anecdotes and insights, but in the end it shows that Paradise is not all it’s cracked up to be.
Barbara is a member of the New Zealand Society of Authors and you can order her latest work through The Book Depository or
