Product Details

From the Author

A fast-moving novel in a Cretan village—kidnaps and killings, prayers and healing, ethics and ritual, and a darned good tale! A young American archaeologist on the Greek island of Crete to study Minoan ruins and to marry his fiancee, after which he'll go to work for her father, and his life will be over. He flees his wedding to begin a modern odyssey that will change his life. He lands in a traditional Cretan village, still torn apart by divided loyalties from World War II. The archaeologist becomes the central pawn in a vicious family vendetta. The village is still suffering damage from World War II when the Nazis massacred townspeople in retaliation for their resistance. Families have inherited shame and rage, and the new priest must bring their secrets to light to begin the process of healing.
