RT Rating

There’s plenty of romance, myth and magic in this fast-paced, emotional roller-coaster ride of a story. Add to that a believable storyline, well-developed characters and breathtaking detail of the Greek islands, and you have an intriguing tale in Corporon’s debut. The author uses her knowledge of Greek history to weave a spellbinding story that fans will not soon forget.

As a single mother of a young child still grieving over the death of her husband, Daphne didn’t know if she’d ever achieve success but somehow she pulled it together and has managed to do well — even if she feels like she’s sleepwalking through it all. She should be happy: She has found love again and is planning her wedding, but the pull of Erikousa, Greece, and her beloved grandmother is hard to resist. So Daphne convinces her soon-to-be husband to have their wedding on the island. In preparation for the big day, Daphne takes her daughter with her to Erikousa to get everything ready. It seems that her grandmother has one more life lesson to teach her, sharing stories about the family’s past with the hope that Daphne will find the peace — and passion –– she deserves.
