it was amazing

My gracious this was a gorgeous read. The writing was compelling and immediate, and it just grabbed me right away. Gage set himself a difficult task: how to tell the story of his mother against the backdrop of the Greek civil war, many years after her death. This was not an easy feat, but he managed to do a great job with both and never get boring with the historical aspects of the book. He also took aa good hard look at himself and what he was all about -- and he made the right choice to be the son his mother would have wanted him to be. I won't give any more away than that. Highly engaging book.
