She becomes acquainted with other local residents: a runaway American housewife, a British playwright, an Italian countess, a New Zealand sailor, a handsome Greek widower -- and, most importantly, Aristos, an aging wealthy shipping magnate, and Marina, a tempestuous once-famous opera star. Visiting the stately Pericles Salon nearby, Cate has her first hint that something strange may be going on, but it is only after unexpected disclosures and a frightening fiery climax that the whole story is finally revealed -- and Medea’s story unfolds in its 21st-century reincarnation.

In addition to suspense, mystery, and romance, the novel includes details of Greek village life, trips to Corinth and other historical sites, sailing in the Aegean, Grecian drama and theater, amusing and stimulating conversations, and finally an ending satisfying in more ways than one.The author, an American married to a Greek, spends her summers in a small Aegean village similar to the village in this novel.

Many details of the setting and the plot are based on the author’s interest in Hellenic history and mythology, as well as her own personal experiences in Greece. She will soon be publishing her next novels in this series, The Days Are Not Long Enough and Home Sweet Homer, which continue with the same characters and take place in Italy, Greece, and Cyprus.
