Hillingdon Library

Back by popular demand, Victoria Hislop returns to Hillingdon to tell us all about her latest novel.

Athens 1941. After decades of political uncertainty, Greece is polarised between Right and Left-wing views when the Germans invade. Fifteen-year-old Themis comes from a family divided by these political difference. The Nazi occupation deepens the fault-lines between those she loves, just as it reduces Greece to destitution.

This powerful new novel from Number One best seller, Victoria Hislop, sheds light on the complexity and trauma of Greece’s past and weaves in the epic tale of an ordinary woman compelled to live an extraordinary life.

This event takes place in the Great Barn at Manor Farm in Ruislip.
