'She brings Greek history to compelling life' The Sunday Times
'Hislop has done her research and handles the great sweep of complex Greek history with skill and confidence' Daily Mail
Athens, 1941. Nazi forces occupy Greece ... and a nation falls apart. Victoria Hislop's NEW Sunday Times Number One bestseller takes you into the darker days of Greek history and, through the eyes of its extraordinary heroine, illuminates the courage it takes to live in peace.
After decades of political uncertainty, Greece is polarised between Right- and Left-wing views when the Germans invade.
Fifteen-year-old Themis comes from a family divided by these political differences. The Nazi occupation deepens the fault-lines between those she loves just as it reduces Greece to destitution. She watches friends die in the ensuing famine and is moved to commit acts of resistance.
In the civil war that follows the end of the occupation, Themis joins the Communist army, where she experiences the extremes of love and hatred and the paradoxes presented by a war in which Greek fights Greek.
Eventually imprisoned on the infamous islands of exile, Makronisos and then Trikeri, Themis encounters another prisoner whose life will entwine with her own in ways neither can foresee. And finds she must weigh her principles against her desire to escape and live.
As she looks back on her life, Themis realises how tightly the personal and political can become entangled. While some wounds heal, others deepen.
This gripping new novel from bestselling author Victoria Hislop sheds light on the complexity and trauma of Greece's past and weaves it into the epic tale of an ordinary woman compelled to live an extraordinary life.

Biographie de l'auteur
Inspired by a visit to Spinalonga, the abandoned Greek leprosy colony, Victoria Hislop wrote The Island in 2005. It became an international bestseller and a 26-part Greek TV series. She was named Newcomer of the Year at the British Book Awards and is now an ambassador for Lepra. Her affection for the Mediterranean then took her to Spain, and in the number one bestseller The Return she wrote about the painful secrets of its civil war. In The Thread, Victoria returned to Greece to tell the turbulent tale of Thessaloniki and its people across the twentieth century. Shortlisted for a British Book Award, it confirmed her reputation as an inspirational storyteller.
Her fourth novel, The Sunrise, about the Turkish invasion of Cyprus and the enduring ghost town of Famagusta, was a Sunday Times number one bestseller. Cartes Postales from Greece, fiction illustrated with photographs, was a Sunday Times bestseller in hardback and one of the biggest selling books of 2016. Victoria's most recent novel, the poignant and powerful Those Who Are Loved, was a Sunday Times number one hardback bestseller in 2019 and explores a tempestuous period of modern Greek history through the eyes of a complex and compelling heroine.
Her books have been translated into more than thirty-five languages.
Victoria divides her time between England and Greece.
In 2020, Victoria was granted Honorary Greek Citizenship by the President of Greece.

Quelle histoire poignante et dure, à la fois.
Comme souvent pour ses romans, cela se passe en Grèce...
Cette fois c'est l'histoire de Thémis et sa famille, qui commence dans les années 30 à Athènes jusqu'à nos jours.
Elle a 2 frères et 1 soeur.
Ils sont divisés en 2 camps, et se disputent souvent au sujet de la politique.
Puis Thémis quitte sa famille pour combattre pour ses idées.
On découvre les horreurs vécues en Grèce pendant la 2e Guerre Mondiale, puis la guerre civile, les différents putschs.
Quelle oppression ce peuple a vécu, quelles tortures ont subi les opposants aux régimes en places, dictatures et / ou occupation....
Impossible de lâcher ce livre (plus de 1000 pages sur ma Kobo...), j'ai beaucoup appris et ai adoré, pleuré, enragé par tout ce qui est décrit....
Je vous le recommande chaudement

Well, what a disappointment. It has no heart, just reads like a history documentation with a cliched family at the centre and, surprise surprise! The family has siblings with opposing opinions.
Sounds a bit daft, but the names Ms Hislop has chosen for her characters doesn't help matters. (And I'm speaking as someone who has read loads of spy novels with Russian names without a problem.) Two siblings, one called Themis and one called Thanasis. If you don't know Greek, would you really see one of those names as male and one as female? They are just too similar. It really jarred. I found it all a bit soulless and dull and have had to admit defeat - always disappointing when it's an author I've previously liked.
Beautifully written as always, Victoria Hislop sets and amazing scene of Greek family life, the good and the bad. I love her books and this did not disappoint. Being greedy please don’t leave it so long next time.
My wife, who’d already read the book, persuaded me to keep going, informing me that a story did actually start, after the point I’d reached. I found it a hard slog though to get to the end. Whereas in the two novels of Victoria Hislop’s mentioned above, there was an interesting and dramatic story with some historical facts added to keep the reader’s interest, this novel seemed to me to be a history lesson with the small parts of a story added to try and make it less dry. Perhaps the author took too much of a bite out of the timeline, researched masses of historical facts and had little space left for a story.
The premise is that the lead character, an Athens, Greek grandmother, is visited by grandchildren and offloads her personal history onto them as she has always been seen as just a normal grandmother, but she feels there are things they need to know. She then takes up the rest of the novel recounting her story, or recounting the history of Greece if, like me, that is the way you see the book.
Strangely, and amazingly, as Themis recounts her story, we sometimes get the story from other people’s point of view. Which is, of course, impossible.
I guess, if you are looking for an understanding of the history of Greece, through occupation, dictatorship and civil war then this would be a good way to learn and the story might not get in the way. However, if you have enjoyed, for instance The Sunrise, enjoyed the action of the story, and the fact that you learned something of the history of Cyprus along the way, then this novel would, in my opinion, not be for you.
