"this grips from the get-go"

The sequel to her moving bestseller, The Island, this grips from the get-go. The story begins just before the release of families, friends, and lovers who has years before been consigned to the leper colony of Spinalonga. A dramatic story of love, betrayal and allegiances, the repercussions of a moment of terrible jealousy reverberate through many lives. Hislop evokes Greece beautifully — you can picture the scenes, taste the salt on the sea air and feel the emotional pull of each and every character. Fans of The Island will be thrilled.
