This is the wonderful story of the Petrakis family history. It also was fascinating to read about life on the Greek Island Spinalonga when it was used as a leper colony and how their life was not the horrific lives associated with lepers but rather, a fairly regular life.
This is also about people, love, loss, choices as well as WWII. It is all that and more, brought together in such a wonderfully woven story. I will definitely be reading more by this fabulous author.
