Publisher's Summary

Rebecca Neumanner's marriage is on the brink of collapse as her desire to be a mother becomes an obsession. Then she receives news from her estranged family in Rhodes.

Called back to the beautiful Greek island of her birth, she realises how little she knows of the grandmother she has eluded for over a decade. Bubba has never spoken of the Nazi occupation during her youth, but there have always been whispers. What desperate measures did she take that terrible day in 1944 when her family was ripped apart? Can the rumour she had blood on her own hands really be true? But Bubba intends to take her secrets to the grave.

However, as Rebecca arrives on Rhodes, bringing the promise of new life, this broken family must come together. The time has come to tell the truth about the darkest of days....

If you love The Island and Cartes Postales from Greece by Victoria Hislop , you will love this perfect summer listen from the author of Island of Secrets.

Compelling read

By pure chance, completed listening to this book on Armistice day 2021. It seemed entirely appropriate to be so absorbed in this story at this time of year. A sad but beautiful reminder of the tragedy of war .....could not put it down.

Beautiful

This was an emotional piece of work spanning decades of events that will keep you guessing. Romance, tragedy, and history all in one. The writing is poignant and the performance is stellar. Vivid imagery.
