    Alexis Fielding longs to find out about her mother's past, but Sofia has never spoken of it. She only admits to growing up in a small Cretan village before moving to London. When Alexis decides to visit Crete, however, Sofia gives her daughter a letter to take to an old friend and promises that, through her, she will learn more. Arriving in Plaka, Alexis learns that it lies a stone's throw from the deserted island of Spinalonga - Greece's former leper colony.

    Beneath the majestic towers of the Alhambra, Granada's cobbled streets resonate with music and secrets. Sonia Cameron knows nothing of the city's shocking past; she is here to dance. But in a quiet café, a chance conversation and an intriguing collection of old photographs draw her into the extraordinary tale of Spain's devastating civil war. Seventy years earlier, the café is home to the close-knit Ramírez family. In 1936, an army coup led by Franco shatters the country's fragile peace, and in the heart of Granada the family witnesses the worst atrocities of conflict.

    In 10 powerful stories, Victoria Hislop takes us through the streets of Athens and into the tree-lined squares of Greek villages.

    Été 1972. La ville de Famagouste, à Chypre, héberge la station balnéaire la plus enviée de la Méditerranée, cité rayonnante et bénie des dieux. Un couple ambitieux ouvre l'hôtel le plus spectaculaire de l'île, Le Sunrise, où Chypriotes grecs et turcs collaborent en parfaite harmonie. Deux familles voisines, les Georgiou et les Özkan, sont de celles, nombreuses, venues s'installer à Famagouste pour fuir des années de troubles et de violences ethniques dans le reste de l'île, où la tension monte. Lorsqu'un putsch grec plonge l'île dans le chaos, celle-ci devient le théâtre d'un conflit désastreux. La Turquie envahit Chypre afin de protéger sa minorité sur place, et Famagouste est bombardée. Quarante mille personnes, n'emportant que leurs biens les plus précieux, fuient l'armée en marche. Dans la ville désertée, seules deux familles demeurent. Voici leur histoire.
