Black Butterflies

(2012)
(The second book in the Greek Village series)
A novel by

 
 
Marina is a gentle soul who makes a modest living in her corner shop. Her husband died years ago, and her children have grown up. Life is pleasantly predictable, if a little dull.

But not even her daughters know that 35 years ago Marina spent lonely months on a nearby island, and the events of that summer have haunted her ever since.

Now Marina's daughter is planning to move to the same island and the past and present threaten to collide with dreadful consequences.

Black Butterflies follows Marina reluctantly revisiting the island. She has a plan, of sorts, to avert possible tragedy but in doing so she will come face to face with the consequences of her long-kept secret. Will she be in time, and why does she never go anywhere without her big black bag?

Packed with a troupe of colorful characters that intertwine in a gripping story, Black Butterflies is by turns uproariously funny, touching, or sad. Exploring themes of bigotry and how doing what we think is for the best can unwittingly harm those we love, this is a gentle journey to one woman's redemption.

Genre: General Fiction
