'A beautifully woven love story . . . spellbinding, heart-breaking' Daily Express 'Compelling' Sunday Times 'She makes a touching family story out of violent and divisive times' Daily Mail 'Glorious . . . rich . . . captivating' Woman & Home 'Moving' S Magazine 'Victoria Hislop's view of history in her novels is, like the writer herself, a compassionate and generous one' Scotsman Athens 1941. After decades of political uncertainty, Greece is polarised between Right- and Left-wing views when the Germans invade. Fifteen-year-old Themis comes from a family divided by these political differences. The Nazi occupation deepens the fault-lines between those she loves just as it reduces Greece to destitution. She watches friends die in the ensuing famine and is moved to commit acts of resistance. In the civil war that follows the end of the occupation, Themis joins the Communist army, where she experiences the extremes of love and hatred and the paradoxes presented by a war in which Greek fights Greek. Eventually imprisoned on the infamous islands of exile, Makronisos and then Trikeri, Themis encounters another prisoner whose life will entwine with her own in ways neither can foresee. And finds she must weigh her principles against her desire to escape and live. As she looks back on her life, Themis realises how tightly the personal and political can become entangled. While some wounds heal, others deepen. This powerful new novel from Number One bestseller Victoria Hislop weaves the complexity and trauma of Greece's past into the epic and beautiful tale of an ordinary woman compelled to live an extraordinary life.
