'Lyrical, twisty short stories' Evening Standard
A collection of stunning short stories from the million-copy bestselling author of The Island. Three of these stories were previously published in Victoria Hislop's ebook collection, One Cretan Evening.
In ten powerful stories, Victoria Hislop takes us through the streets of Athens and into the tree-lined squares of Greek villages. As she evokes their distinct atmosphere, she brings vividly to life a host of unforgettable characters, from a lonesome priest to battling brothers, and from an unwanted stranger to a groom troubled by music and memory.
These bittersweet tales of love and loyalty, of separation and reconciliation, captured in Victoria Hislop's unique voice, will stay with you long after you reach the end.
