If you love The Island and Cartes Postales from Greece by Victoria Hislop, you will love this perfect summer read.
Rebecca Neumanner has spent years trying to conceive a child. Her fragile marriage is on the brink of collapse, and her desire to become a mother is becoming an obsession. Then she receives news from her estranged family in Rhodes, and Rebecca’s world is turned upside down.
Drawn to the beautiful island of her birth, she finds herself looking at the elderly lady in front of her and realising how little she knows of the grandmother she’s eluded for over a decade. A freedom fighter in the Second World War, her Bubba harbours secrets that she has intended to take to the grave.
But those secrets affect everyone, and perhaps they are not hers to keep. With Rebecca’s arrival, the time has come to tell the truth . . .
