批評家のレビュー

"An emotionally charged story right from the first chapter.... I knew once I started I would not be able to put this book down.... I was up till 4AM reading fighting for my eyes to stay open.... Gripping and captivating!" (Sinfully Wicked Book Reviews)

"Reading this, I felt instantly transported.... This is one novel I would 100% recommend putting on your TBR list this summer.... It will completely move you & pull at your heart strings." (Kate J Renee Book Reviews)

あらすじ・解説

The place seemed utterly still; the only sound was the wind rustling high in the pines above. Standing there, realizing she didn’t even know which house had belonged to her grandmother, Ava wondered just how crazy and desperate she’d been to come all this way with no hope or plan.

When Ava arrives in Greece, it’s with a heart that’s shattered into a thousand pieces. But as she pulls up in a tiny village nestled on a cliff above the glittering Ionian Sea and steps out in front of a tumbledown house that once belonged to her grandmother Sophia, everything changes.

At first Ava almost wants to laugh at this bizarre inheritance - a home that has been uninhabited since the Second World War - that appears as close to collapse as she herself feels. But with nowhere left to run to, her only choice is to start putting the house together again.

What Ava doesn’t expect is for pieces of her grandmother’s story to emerge, as a local survivor from the war begins to share her secrets. Ava can’t help but be drawn to Sophia’s hidden past...even though the truth could change her own life forever.

Because Sophia’s story is one of devastating choices she had to make during the Nazi invasion of her beloved country. It’s a story of bravery, betrayal, and tragedy. But most of all, it is a story about love....

An utterly unforgettable story of two remarkable women who find the strength to persevere against all odds and find hope, courage, and light in the darkness. Perfect for fans of The Nightingale, The Lilac Girls, and Victoria Hislop’s The Island.

Alot about little

The story was over dramatic in recent times and frustrating in the war torn past. The one dimensional characters did not deliver a sense of purpose or history or connection or even love to make the story interesting. Wondering why I bothered to finish. it was like I was hoping something would begin to build an interesting story. The narration was boring, but not sure it was the story itself or the narrator.
