One Summer in Crete Book Launch

Tuesday 19 May 2020

We regret to inform you that this event has been postponed until autumn.

Sophie’s world has fallen apart – her relationship is suddenly over and her chances of starting a family are gone. So when she’s sent to write a magazine article about the Greek island of Ikaria, it seems the perfect escape. The locals there are reported to be among the happiest and longest-living in the world. The island has a secret, one that Sophie is determined to uncover . . .

Travelling to Crete, from where her family originates, Sophie begins to suspect there are more secrets closer to home. Her aunt Maritsa begins to recount the story of her own heartache as a teenage girl facing cruel hardships in rural Greece. A story of love, betrayal and revenge, it will change Sophie’s life forever.

One Summer in Crete is a gloriously sunny book by Nadia Marks.
