A Rainbow in the Dark is the moving account of the journey to adulthood of Sophia, born on the beautiful Greek island of Patmos. The tragic experiences of her youth help to form her determined yet sympathetic character. The decisions she makes result in her move to America to follow her dreams, even though this means leaving her soul mate, Michael, behind in Greece. Sundy Kyriaki Iliadou writes sympathetically and brings a strong Greek flavour to this absorbing and beautiful book.The background of colourful characters and stunning scenery bring this tale to life and ensure that Sophia, Michael, Maria, Orestes and others will stay with the reader long after the book is finished, as will the visions of sunsets and sunrises over the Aegean Sea, white-walled courtyards bathed in sunshine and the bustle of Athens and Thessaloniki. Footnotes on the history and geography of Greece add depth to the story.

Sundy Kyriaki Iliadou was born in Greece and has been living in London for the past three years. In 2008, she wrote her first book, the original Greek version of "A Rainbow in the Dark", which was awarded a prize by the Panhellenic Union of Writers. As a freelance columnist, she used to write for the e-magazine "Wedding Rehearsal" and also wrote two novellas: ‘Karmic night' and ‘Michel'. Alongside writing, Sundy works full-time as a qualified nanny-tutor.

    I loved this book! Beautiful story, which makes you think about life and what life means to each of us. The dramatic plot keeps you on your toes, and you find yourself empathising and sympathising with the characters throughout the story. Utterly moving and totally recommended!
