Publisher's Summary

Olivia has settled on the tiny Greek island of Halemni; she is married to a Greek man and is mother of two small sons. As the turquoise of summer dissolves into the cool of autumn, so the rhythm of island life goes on unchanged, until an earthquake ravages the Turkish coast, sending a tidal wave to envelop the island. Its force devastates Halemni, tearing apart the fabric of the small community. In the aftermath, a stranger appears. Kitty, an Englishwoman, is alone and without possessions. She accepts Olivia's offer of refuge in the potter's house, but she guards her past as preciously as Olivia protects her young family.


What the Critics Say

"[Rula Lenska] is superb....Rosie Thomas has written a humane story, and Lenska takes the story to new heights with her magnificent application of Greek dialect, understanding of human emotions, and love of these characters." (AudioFile)
