WARNING! Reading this book on your holiday may make you miss your flight home ...
In a vivid depiction of life amongst the orange groves and the hazy sun of a small Greek Village, The Stolen book is a gripping tale of hardship and devotion as one woman goes to extraordinary lengths for the future of her children.
Life hadn't been easy for Niki, and having made her way from Albania to Greece, she worked hard as a cleaner in the village only to find herself struggling in a financial rut. Although happily married to a local orange farmer, her husband Karolos was unambitious and Niki longed to find a way to provide a better future for their two sons.
During a shift at work Niki discovered something that would alter her life forever, but perhaps not in the way she might have expected. Hidden and forgotten under the dust was an open book, and at once she was captivated.
As she cast her eyes over the pages, the book promised just what she needed - wealth and security for her family. The book wasn't hers, she shouldn't have taken it, but to change the destiny of her two sons she became a thief.
As turbulence and chaos of Niki's actions begin to loom , what drastic choices will she have to make to find her way out? Will the risks she took pay off and bring a stable future for her family, or will there be consequences to bear?
In a poignant portrayal of a mother's love, find out how far some will go.
