All her life, London-born Angelika has been intrigued by her mother's secret past. Now planning her wedding, she feels she must visit the remote Crete village her mother grew up in. Angie's estranged elderly grandmother, Maria, is dying. She welcomes Angie with open arms - it's time to unburden herself, and tell the story she'll otherwise take to her grave. It's the story of the Nazi occupation of Crete during the Second World War, of horror, of courage and of the lengths to which a mother will go to protect her children - and it's the story of bitter secrets that broke a family apart, and of three enchanting women who come together to heal wounds that have damaged two generations.

A great really great read. It is well written with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing. All revolves around a big colourful Greek family and all Its secrets. Just be aware, some parts of the story are very “uncomfortable “ and shocking to read, but necessary to the story line. Based a true event that happened in Crete during the war.
