Patricia Wilson, an English ex-pat living in Crete, dug up a rusted machine gun in her garden. And Island of Secrets was born.
- Why would there be a machine gun buried in the ground in the quiet Cretan town of Amiras?
- What secrets does the island hold?
- And what happened in World War II that rocked the lives of the townsfolk for generations to come?
Patricia Wilson is one of our favourite authors at Jefferson Franklin. Her debut novel is based in a truth of the war which rocked the lives of the people of Amiras.
Telling the story of Maria Kondulakis of Amiras, her daughter Poppy, and her granddaughter Angie, it’s a page-turning wonder with plenty of atmosphere. It’s a story about the horrors of war, the wonder of women, and the strength it takes to face dark secrets and build something positive out of the ashes of the past.
That’s why major publisher Bonnier Zaffre snapped it up as part of a two-book deal.
And that’s why you should read it now it’s released in e-book format. It’s a summer beach read, absolutely, with romance, thrill, atmosphere and character. It spins you along a plot that’s full of ups and downs and sidesteps that keeps you guessing all the way to the end.
Knowing that the book is based in truth makes it more special than any other beach read you’ll buy this year.
