As with all Hislop‘s books, this is another Greek fiction story based on fact. Set around a leper colony in the 1940s as well as the present day, this historical story is in equal parts sad and uplifting. A really good summer read and the perfect companion if you‘re heading to Crete. It‘s made me want to check out Spinalonga when I travel to Crete in September ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

TrishB Just finished her new one, it was a great read. 6d
Ms_T @TrishB Ooh, which one? 6d

Birdsong28 @ms_t You can get a signed copy of the book Trish suggested on Waterstones online 📚📖 6d
Ms_T @Birdsong28 Thanks for the heads up! I‘ll have a look 👍🏻📚😘 6d
Peterfox123 I‘ve bought this for our trip to Crete - WHICH IS VERY SOON. We won‘t be close enough to Spinalonga to visit so I‘ll just have some extra food instead. 5d
Ms_T @Peterfox123 Enjoy the book and save some of the glorious sunshine for me. 5d

I reread this, because I‘m about to get into the whole trilogy, and I wanted this one fresh in my mind.

It‘s still really good, but so much bleaker than I remembered, with its view of life in general. Why didn‘t I remember it being this bleak?

(That new cover redesign though!)

M. Judson's "Classics" section, with its stock of Penguin Deluxe Editions, is gonna put a real dent in my bank account at this rate.

I‘ve been struggling to decide on my next audiobook - right now I don‘t fancy any that are currently in my library - then I remembered this book, set on the Greek island of Crete. As I‘m holidaying there in September it seems perfect 😎✈️

TrishB I remember really enjoying this one 👍🏻 2w
Ms_T @TrishB That‘s great to hear! 2w
JillR I really enjoyed this too :) 2w

I was suddenly filled with the most extraordinary sense of existence as a secret pain, an inner torment it was impossible to share with others, who asked you to attend to them while remaining oblivious to what was inside you
