Beloved author Victoria Hislop returns to Crete in this long- anticipated sequel to her multi-million-copy Number One bestseller, The Island, which focused on Spinalonga, home to a Greek leper colony.
One August Night picks up after the colony has closed, amid a celebration disrupted by violence.
25th August 1957. When time stops dead for Maria Petrakis and her sister, Anna, two families splinter apart and, for the people of Plaka, the closure of Spinalonga is forever coloured with tragedy.
In the aftermath, the question of how to resume life looms large. Stigma and scandal need to be confronted and somehow, for those impacted, a future built from the ruins of the past.
