Greece 1936.

A young British diplomat and his wife have been posted to Athens. Hugh loves the life there but his spirited and unconventional wife, Evadne, finds it hard to fit in with the whirl of endless parties and socialising.

When Hugh is sent to Crete to sort out a problem, they stay in a rundown house owned by his family. His wife falls in love with the place and the people, and stays on when Hugh returns to his duties. As she tries to rebuild the ramshackle home, Evadne - known as Heavenly by the locals - makes firm friends with Anthi, a young woman from the village and Christo, the handsome and charismatic young builder.

But the dark clouds of war are gathering and the island will become a crucible of violence and bloodshed in the days to come. For Heavenly, her friends and family, it will be the greatest test they have ever known.

"An interesting story." --"San Francisco Book Review"

"An interesting story." "San Francisco Book Review""

From the Publisher:

I can only imagine what you're thinking... How can you trust me when I've got my publisher hat on, right? Well, mostly because, hand on heart, I can honestly say I've never done this before. In truth, no book has touched me enough to warrant doing this. But poignant and evocative in equal measure, Brenda Reid has created an astonishing debut, peopled with larger-than-life characters and vivid historical detail. It is a love story that will sweep you away to 1930s Crete, an island on the brink of war. As the war clouds loom ever closer, Brenda builds up the suspense and when at last those clouds burst forth, the heroic tales of resistance will remain with you long after you read the last sentence. If you're anything like me and you want to be utterly engrossed in a story, then this is the book for you. The perfect summer read to escape on holiday with. Or given the weather recently, steal a few moments in the sun with during your lunch break.
