Finding Callidora by Stella Leventoyannis Harvey
Rate this book
Clear rating
Finding Callidora is a family drama taken to the next level with war and politics as a compelling backdrop. I felt I was learning a great deal about history, which I love when I’m reading fiction, all through the eyes of a diverse cast of characters.
