Publisher's Summary

A beautiful, heartbreaking story of sacrifice and love in the face of evil.

'The story started at dawn on the 14th of September, 1943....'

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.

Poorly written

I found the only redeeming feature of this book are the historical references, hence the two stars. Unfortunately the rest of the book is completely ridiculous and far too try hard. The main character is not relatable as a 37yr old woman, far too many clichés and coincidences.
