THOSE WHO ARE LOVED

Hislop, Victoria, 1959-

Εκδότης Headline , ISBN 9781472223234

The gripping new novel by Sunday Times Number One bestseller Victoria Hislop is set against the backdrop of the German occupation of Greece, the subsequent civil war and a military dictatorship, all of which left deep scars.

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 differences. The Nazi occupation deepens the fault-lines between those she loves just as it reduces Greece to destitution. She watches friends die in the ensuing famine and is moved to commit acts of resistance.

In the civil war that follows the end of the occupation, Themis joins the Communist army, where she experiences the extremes of love and hatred and the paradoxes presented by a war in which Greek fights Greek.

Eventually imprisoned on the infamous islands of exile, Makronisos and then Trikeri, Themis encounters another prisoner whose life will entwine with her own in ways neither can foresee. And finds she must weigh her principles against her desire to escape and live.

As she looks back on her life, Themis realises how tightly the personal and political can become entangled. While some wounds heal, others deepen.

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

Συγγραφέας

Η Victoria Hislop γεννήθηκε στο Bromley του Kεντ, κοντά στο Λονδίνο, το 1959. Σπούδασε αγγλική φιλολογία στο St Hilda's College της Οξφόρδης. Είναι ταξιδιωτική συντάκτρια για τις περιοδικές εκδόσεις "Sunday Telegraph", "Mail on Sunday" και "Woman & Home". Το πρώτο της μυθιστόρημα, "Το Νησί", παρέμεινε στο Νο. 1 της λίστας ευπώλητων βιβλίων των "Sunday Times" επί οκτώ διαδοχικές εβδομάδες και έχει πουλήσει πάνω από δύο εκατομμύρια αντίτυπα. "Το Νησί" αποτελεί εκδοτικό φαινόμενο για την Ελλάδα, κορυφαίο best seller όλων των εποχών και αγαπήθηκε τόσο από το γυναικείο όσο και από το ανδρικό κοινό. Η Victoria Ηislop συμμετείχε επίσης ως σύμβουλος σεναρίου στην τηλεοπτική μεταφορά του μυθιστορήματος στην Ελλάδα, μια σειρά 26 επεισοδίων που κατέγραψε πρωτοφανή ύψη τηλεθέασης. Αναδείχθηκε Κορυφαία Νεοεισερχόμενη Συγγραφέας στο πλαίσιο του θεσμού Galaxy British Book Awards του 2007, ενώ της απονεμήθηκε και το βραβείο Richard & Judy Summer Read. "Το Νησί" έχει μεταφραστεί σε πάνω από 30 γλώσσες. Το δεύτερο μυθιστόρημά της, "Ο Γυρισμός", κατέλαβε με την κυκλοφορία του τη δεύτερη θέση στη λίστα ευπώλητων των "Sunday Times" και την πρώτη θέση στη λίστα βιβλίων με μαλακό εξώφυλλο. To τρίτο της μυθιστόρημα, "Το νήμα" μπήκε και αυτό στη λίστα των best seller και έτυχε εγκωμιαστικών κριτικών. Η Victoria ζει στο Κεντ με το σύζυγό της και τα δύο τους παιδιά. Inspired by a visit to Spinalonga, the abandoned Greek leprosy colony, Victoria Hislop wrote The Island in 2005. It became an international bestseller and a 26-part Greek TV series. She was named Newcomer of the Year at the British Book Awards and is now an ambassador for Lepra. Her affection for the Mediterranean took her to Spain, which inspired her second bestseller The Return, and she returned to Greece to tell the turbulent tale of Thessaloniki in The Thread, shortlisted for a British Book Award and confirming her reputation as an inspirational storyteller. The Sunrise, a Sunday Times Number One bestseller about the Turkish invasion of Cyprus, was published to widespread acclaim in 2014. Victoria Hislop’s latest book, Cartes Postales from Greece, is fiction illustrated with photographs. It was a Sunday Times bestseller in hardback and one of the biggest selling books of 2016.
