Another superb novella and it differs vastly from what Sara has ever written before - Rani
The Priest's Well is a novella which will whisk you to a charming village in rural Greece, where an ambitious young priest returns after his career is thrown into disrepute in America.
It was Savvas' mother's dying wish that he joined the priesthood, but following a scandal in the US he is appointed as priest in a seemingly quiet, remote Greek village.
Reluctantly, Savvas makes the move knowing his mother would have wanted it that way, but having grown accustomed to the grand ways of city life he is more than disgruntled at finding himself in the middle of nowhere.
But it doesn't take long until mysterious stories from the past start to resurface. Savvas soon finds himself embroiled in village politics as he discovers village secrets do not mix well with his own self-interests. His plans to secure his own status and comfort start to unravel as Savvas finds himself caught between the spiteful Maria and bewitching, alluring Nefeli, the housekeeper's daughter.
Is he trying in vain, or can Savvas undo the work of his predecessors? What price is he willing to pay when it comes to serving his own needs? And is Nefeli all that she seems?
Woven with dark undertones and unexpected twists, find out if Savvas is about to fall from grace, yet again.
