Description

A NATIONAL BESTSELLER IN GREECE

Calliope Adham is a schoolmistress in the Greek village of Molyvos when Hitler's army invades in 1941. Young and linguistically gifted, she is promptly recruited by the Germans, to work as their liaison officer. It is the beginning of a personal and national saga that will last well over thirty years.

Calliope's wartime duties bring her into close contact with a Wehrmacht officer named Lieutenant Umbreit. Their improbable friendship blossoms despite Calliope's clandestine work for the Resistance, in a fishing village seething with dread and suspicion.

Amid privation and death, village hostility finally erupts, but the bond between Calliope and Umbreit survives the Occupation, taking unforeseeable turns. Their relationship continues through several tumultuous decades, as Greece is ravaged by civil war, oppressed by military dictatorship, and finally liberated in the mid 1970s.

The Captive Sun is a haunting novel, weaving the private and the historic into a vivid tapestry of Greek island life. An epic page-turner, it chronicles the story of an extraordinary woman and her lifelong struggle against social and political tyranny.
