A really fantastic read, steeped into history, amazing amount of research done for this amazing book.

Sent away to a convent school in Dublin at the age of five, Irini McGuire has always had a strained and distant relationship with her mother, Bridget, a celebrated archaeologist who lives on the paradise island of Santorini.

So, when Irini receives news that Bridget has been injured at a dig and is in a coma, she knows it is finally time to return to the island of her birth. Reading t

This book was amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed the historical aspect and the mystery and couldn't put it down. The only slightly negative point I would probably make is that the love story between Angelo and Irini seemed rather lukewarm and I failed to really believe that aspect of the story. I was sorry to finish this book and hope that Patricia will write more(have read her previous books Island of secrets and villa of secrets as well and thoroughly enjoyed them).I especially love the settings as ...more

Lett lest grei historie om en irsk jente som blir sent på boarding school av sine arkeologi foreldre fordi moren blander virkelighet og fantasi fra antikkens Hellas og tror hun er dronning Thira av Atlantis som må ofre sin datter Oia til guden Poeseidon for å roe ned vulkanen og sjøen som truer med å ødelegge hennes folk og øy. Boken følger datterens reise i å oppklare og bli kjent med foreldrenes hemmeligheter samtidig som hun finner kjærligheten.

Not a great read.

I found this book an annoying read got the extent i skipped past all the ancient gods part - although I totally understand how /why it's in the storyline - it wasn't a book i enjoyed - but am sure there are people out there who will love it.

It was said that if you are a fan of Lucinda Riley,you will love this author. I'm afraid it's an insult to Lucinda.... this book is a load of whining immature dribble, repetitive dribble at that

Wonderful story

This book definitely deserves the 5 stars. Every page I turned conjured up the people and villages of the Islands and the storyline kept me hungry to turn the pages. The story of ancient Greece came alive.

Non stop good read

Fascinating time line, unusual story, so well written you can picture the places people and events, sad to reach the end.

Couldn't get my head round this one at all so abandoned it about a third of the way through.

Loved the vivid descriptions in the book

I love Greece, and I return every year to Crete. To read a book with such vivid descriptions of the island is a pure joy. Great story.

Thank you for NetGalley and publishers for an advanced copy of this book.

I was so excited to be able to get an advanced copy but was left disappointed as I didn’t find this book as easy to read and as enjoyable as the author’s previous books.

However, this is my own personal opinion and I really believe that other readers will have a totally different opinion and love the book as the characterisations and descriptions are still as great as her previous books.

I couldn’t resist buying this ebook as I lay by the hotel pool in Fira, Santorini.

What a fabulous read, mingling my love of history (as a Classics graduate) and travel in a fast-paced story of complicated family relationships and archaeology. We visited the incredible Bronze Age ruins at Akrotiri yesterday and climbed Nea Kameni volcano today, so it was very special to read about the locations and the people of this island.

Patricia Wilson manages all the complex layers re
