Three of these stories were previously published in Victoria Hislop's ebook collection, One Cretan Evening.

In ten powerful stories, Victoria Hislop takes us through the streets of Athens and into the tree-lined squares of Greek villages. As she evokes their distinct atmosphere, she brings vividly to life a host of unforgettable characters, from a lonesome priest to battling brothers, and from an unwanted stranger to a groom troubled by music and memory. These bittersweet tales of love and loyalty, of separation and reconciliation, captured in Victoria Hislop's unique voice, will stay with you long after you reach the end.

'A book to lose yourself in' * We Love This Book *
Modern Greek history, from the Nazi occupation to the present-day economic crisis and riots, is integral to many of the stories. The style is limpid, echoed in the simple line drawings that accompany each tale. They slip down like ice cream on a hot day * Independent *
