Step into the captivating world of Cyprus, a tranquil island during the serene mid-1930s, where the lives of two extraordinary sisters and a talented young man unfold against a backdrop of freedom, love, and ambition.

In this quietly passionate love story, the sisters embark on their personal battles for freedom and love, defying societal expectations and ancient traditions. Their journey intertwines with that of a young man from the remote mountains of Marathasa, who yearns for recognition and happiness in a world that often overlooks him.

As the story unfolds, a family steeped in self-importance and propriety grapples with the upheaval caused by their daughter’s rebellion against age-old customs. Amidst the complexities of human relationships, the island itself reveals its captivating beauty – its land, sea, mountains, and its people, forgotten by the outside world.

But this idyllic slumber is about to be shattered as Cyprus awakens to the turbulent waters of violent protest and international politics. As the island finds itself at the crossroads of historical events, the characters are swept up in a wave of change, testing their resilience and challenging their deepest desires.

Christina Wieland was born in Cyprus but spent most of her adult years in London. She is a practising psychoanalyst and psychotherapist and the author of two books on psychoanalysis and society. This is her first novel.
