Set in Athens and Paris, Natalie Bakopoulos's masterful debut paints a finely etched portrait of one family, whose heartbreaking stories of love and resistance play out against the backdrop of the late 1960s Greek military dictatorship.In 1967, as most of the city slept, colonels in the Greek military swiftly engineered a coup d'État. We bear witness to this devastating event and its brutal aftermath through the stories of four memorable characters: Sophie, a student of French literature, who gets swept up in the resistance alongside her privileged, left-leaning boyfriend; her mother Eleni, a widowed doctor, who struggles with her lost sense of passion in the face of this latest challenge to democracy; Sophie's uncle Mihalis, an outspoken poet of some renown, who finds himself keeping a low profile as he tries to reconcile with his estranged wife; and Anna, Sophie's younger sister, who undergoes the remarkable transformation from fearful insomniac to betrayed lover to empowered student activist. As the years pass, their lives take divergent paths, each searching for love and fulfillment as they struggle to make their own peace with when to stay silent and when to act.
