In the novel’s dual timeline, Kate’s contemporary dilemma led to the discovery of her relatives’ history, but it was Elena’s passion, joie de vivre and patriotism which kept me turning the pages well into the night.
There was a strong bond of love through this story – for lovers, family and friends – but there was also a realistic telling of the difficulties some relationships experience (especially in wartime) and the conclusion of this book dealt with these issues honestly and abruptly, meaning that it will stay in my mind for some time to come.
It's made all the more interesting by the modern part of the story, concerning a young Englishwoman learning like a bolt from the blue of her Greek heritage. Chrissie Parker brings both parts of the story together gradually as one approaches the end of the book and I can't praise her enough for her thoroughness and the believability of the characters.
If you've started this book and wondered whether it's worth it, don't give up on it. I didn't and I was rewarded with a compulsive read that I ended up not being able to put down.
There is laught and tears, a little frustration too but this ends up in a 'not put downable' read. For those people who have visited the island there will be memories stirred of the beautiful island in the Ionian.
Elena, joins the resistance and discovers an airman who crashed on the island and was eventually discovered and protected by the resistance. There are some omissions in this book which irritated me, like who was Kate's father and what was the background of Kate's mother Athena. I suppose you can work this out for yourself but it would have been nice to have to confirmation and a little background. Nevertheless the descriptions of the beautiful island and the characters really held my intrest so all in all an enjoyable read.
