This is the epic story of one families history , told in the past during war time and flipping back and forth to present day . It is about a woman named Poppy and her daughter Angie , the story begins when Londoner Angie starts to plan her wedding , it sets her on a quest to get answers about her mother's mysterious family back home in Crete and the circumstances surrounding their absence from their lives . This takes Angie across oceans and many decades of time in search of the truth about what really happened with her mother and family and why they have not seen each other in so long . The story is uplifting and tearjerking , there was many times throughout the book when I was left with a lump in my throat . These characters are written so well that they completely envelope you and you forget they are characters in a book and not real life actual people . I loved every page of this beautiful book . This is a must read for anyone who enjoys stories about families with long buried secrets .
