Waterstones Says

In this highly anticipated sequel to her bestselling The Island, Hislop returns to the isle of Spinalonga in a nuanced and absorbing tale of hope and tragedy.

Beloved author Victoria Hislop returns to Crete in this long-anticipated sequel to her multi-million-copy Number One bestseller, The Island.

25th August 1957 is the night of a great celebration held in Plaka to mark the closure of the leper colony which sits across the bay: Spinalonga. A cure has been found, and the residents of the island are finally free to return to their families and lives.

But a tragic and violent event turns the night upside down; as some are given their liberty, others are condemned to lose theirs. Those who remain must face unthinkable loss, and rebuild the lives they thought they knew.

One August Night will reunite readers with Anna, Maria, Manoli and Andreas in the weeks leading up to the evacuation of Spinalonga, and through its aftermath.

Having thoroughly enjoyed 'The Island' many years back, the moment I found out Victoria Hislop had written a sequel to this I couldn't wait for it to be released. Firstly, I would say, if you... More

“Another great book”

Victoria has written a great follow up to the Island but it also stands alone. I could feel the sunshine, see the dancing, taste the food and was immersed in the drama. Clever twists and turns kept the interest until... More
