Secrets of Santorini

£2.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

If you love Lucinda Riley and Elizabeth Edmondson, you'll love this perfect escapist read from the author of Islands of Secrets and Villa of Secrets.

Sent away to a convent school in Dublin at the age of five, Irini McGuire has always had a strained and distant relationship with her mother, Bridget, a celebrated archaeologist who lives on the paradise island of Santorini. So, when Irini receives news that Bridget has been injured at a dig and is in a coma, she knows it is finally time to return to the island of her birth.

Reading through her mother's notes at her bedside, Irini starts to realise how little she knows about Bridget's life. Now, driven by rumours that her mother's injury was no accident, Irini must uncover the dark secrets behind her family's separation.

Will she discover the truth about her parents and her past before it is too late?
