‘If you don’t think you’re about to get to Crete this is the next best thing . . . we’ve never needed books of this kind more’ – Vanessa Feltz

Travelling to Crete, where her family is from, Calli soon realizes there is more to discover than paradise beaches and friendly locals. When her aunt Froso begins to share the story of her own teenage heartache, will the love, betrayal and revenge she reveals change Calli’s life forever?
