#99ponkindle today - I thought this was a great read.
Could not go to bed until I‘d finished. This is an awesome, wonderful read. Historical, family saga set in Greece from WWII until modern day. I have to admit I didn‘t know a lot about this particular part of Greek history, it was fantastic and the writing just kept you engrossed.
Loved Themis, what a wonderful character ❤️
I know very little about Greek history so I found this tale enormously interesting. It‘s really engrossing. Themis is a great character, she has such resilence. What she goes through is mind boggling. This is a wonderful story combining historical fact with fiction. It‘s well paced and kept me eager to read more, quite the page turner in fact. The writing is vivid and gives a good sense of time and place. I almost felt I was there.
The Pigeonhole app has managed to pick some absolutely wonderful books over the time I‘ve subscribed to them (it‘s free!) and this is one of them. We follow Themis and her family from childhood to adulthood , through some of the most turbulent years in Greece‘s history. Dictatorships, World Wars, love, loss, imprisonment, migration. I felt emotionally drained by the end. It‘ll be birthday presents for a few friends this year (my mum included!).
