The Island by Victoria Hislop (In Greek)

Greek adaptation of the English edition "The Island"

The Petrakis family lives in the small Greek seaside village of Plaka. Just off the coast is the tiny island of Spinalonga, where the nation's leper colony once was located—a place that has haunted four generations of Petrakis women. There's Eleni, ripped from her husband and two young daughters and sent to Spinalonga in 1939, and her daughters Maria, finding joy in the everyday as she dutifully cares for her father, and Anna, a wild child hungry for passion and a life anywhere but Plaka. And finally there's Alexis, Eleni's great-granddaughter, visiting modern-day Greece to unlock her family's past.

A richly enchanting novel of lives and loves unfolding against the backdrop of the Mediterranean during World War II, The Island is an enthralling story of dreams and desires, of secrets desperately hidden, and of leprosy's touch on an unforgettable family.


Abstract in Greek:

Η Αλέξις λαχταρά να μάθει για το παρελθόν της μητέρας της, Σοφίας, που εκείνη τόσα χρόνια έκρυβε. Ξέρει μόνο ότι η μητέρα της μεγάλωσε σ' ένα μικρό χωριό της Κρήτης προτού φύγει οριστικά για το Λονδίνο. Όταν η Αλέξις αποφασίζει να επισκεφθεί την Κρήτη, η Σοφία της δίνει ένα γράμμα για μια παλιά της φίλη και της υπόσχεται πως απ' αυτήν θα μάθει την αλήθεια.Έκπληκτη η Αλέξις, ανακαλύπτει πως η ζωή της οικογένειάς της συνδέεται άμεσα με το μικρό και εγκαταλελειμμένο νησί της Σπιναλόγκας -την πρώην αποικία των λεπρών. Μαθαίνει την ιστορία της γιαγιάς της και της μητέρας της, όπως και τη διάλυση της οικογένειάς της από την τραγωδία, τον πόλεμο και τα πάθη...
