Following on from Marguerita’s post about novels set n Greece, we have something to look forward to later this year when Victoria Hislop’s sequel to “The Island” is planned for publication: “One August Night” will be published on 29 October 2020 and will reunite readers with Anna, Maria, Manoli and Andreas in the weeks leading up to the evacuation of Spinalonga, and through its aftermath.
I found Hislop’s most recent novel: “Those who are loved” extremely enjoyable. Mostly set in Athens and the mysterious nearby island of Macronisos, it’s an epic family tale set in a very turbulent Greece. It was part history lesson and part novel but the two enmeshed perfectly.
Two other novels set in Crete are also worth reading:
“The lost Lyre” by Richard Clark and “Crete Connection” by John Manuel - both available for downloading to Kindle.
I’m also looking forward to reading:
“Greek Lessons” by Rita Wilson and “Eurydice Street - A place in Athens” by Sofka Zinovieff.
