|Among the Olive Groves - Book cover|
Elena Petrakis adores living on the Greek island of Zakynthos. When World War Two looms her way of life is threatened. Left with no choice she joins the island's resistance to fight for what she believes in; her family, her home, and her freedom.
Decades later, thousands of miles away in the Cornish town of Newquay, Kate Fisher prepares to celebrate her twenty-first birthday, but her joy is fleeting when she learns she is adopted. Abandoning life in England, Kate flees to Zakynthos, where she is forced to acknowledge a life she has struggled to come to terms with, one that will change her future.
From the beautiful crystal turquoise seas of the Ionian Islands to the rugged shores of the Cornish coast, 'Among the Olive Groves' is a story of love, bravery and sacrifice.
Excerpt from the book
Angelos Sarkis was checking the olive trees when he heard the sweet melodic voice; it carried on the light breeze and wrapped itself around him like a comforting blanket. Intrigued, he stopped working and followed the sound. With growing curiosity, he dipped under the branches of a tree, and took in a scruffy girl, sitting on the wall. He was very tempted to stop, but knew he didn’t have the time, so he continued walking, a brief smile passing across his lips as they locked eyes.
“Hey you! Sing with me!” she shouted as he walked by. Angelos tried his best not to stare, but her beauty shone brighter than the sun overhead. He had to stop. He was lost for words and just stood like a fool gaping at her, as though an angel had descended before him, trapping him in its heavenly spell. Elena grinned, jumped down and ran over to him. It was only then that he noticed her feet were bare.
