Odysseas Anastasakos has spent the past 17 years living in exile in Boston. A fatal accident when he was 15 years old forced him to denounce his Grecian birthplace and led him in pursuit of a new life where he could escape the demons of his past. But on his first return to Greece in 17 years, Odysseas is confronted by a passionate love that will change everything. Two summers seventeen years apart; a past and a present that will determine the future of all those involved. A beautiful novel, vibrant with Greek flavours that captures one person's dilemma when deciding between honour and love, this story is universal and at the same time a deeply personal tale of a love that surpasses distance, dissolves differences and survives time.
