I had to read this yet again, probably for the 20th time, because it takes place in Greece and I've been reading other Greek suspensers lately. I read this book when it first came out in the late fifties, and have been reading it ever since (my name is Michael). It's about a post-war adventure in Greece as a young Englishwoman takes a trip to Delphi and gets ensared in intrigue and drama. There are definitely better books by Mary Stewart, but this one has a special appeal and brings you back to those days when World War 2 was still a hard-wired memory and women's lib was just getting it's motor fired up. Need some warm Greek sun? Read this one along with Strangers in Company by Jane Aiken Hodge (which mentions it), The Sea King's Daughter by Barbara Michaels, The Yellow Gold of Tiryns by Helena Osborne, The Lion of Delos by Anne Worboys, and Mary Stewart's other Greek thrillers - The Moon-Spinners and This Rough Magic.
