On the run from heartbreak, she might just end up finding happiness…

‘If you don’t think you’re about to get to Crete this is the next best thing … we’ve never needed books of this kind more’ Vanessa Feltz

Calli’s world has fallen apart – her relationship is suddenly over and her chances of starting a family are gone. So when she’s sent to write a magazine article about the Greek island of Ikaria, it seems the perfect escape.

Travelling to Crete, where her family is from, Calli soon realises there is more to discover than paradise beaches and friendly locals. When her aunt Froso begins to share the story of her own teenage heartache, will the love, betrayal and revenge she reveals change Calli’s life forever?

One Summer in Crete by Nadia Marks is a gloriously sunny book of family secrets, lost loves, and self-discovery.
