Summary
When Alexis Petrakis travels to Greece to learn of her family's history, she learns the story of her great-grandmother Eleni and a long-abandoned leper colony on the island of Spinalonga during World War II.
Critique
A rich novel that is part romance, part historical fiction and family saga. A good choice for book discussions.
