The Garden of Healing
Dimitri Grigoris had lived in England since the Second World War and revealed little of his past. He left the village of Kipos on the island of Tritinos abruptly, bearing a secret he never revealed. Why did he anglicise his name to Gregory? And why did he never return or speak of the island?
Years later, the future looks bleak for Dimitri’s grandson Paul. Discharged from the army on medical grounds and struggling to come to terms with his wife’s death, the grieving ex-soldier must care for his teenage daughter Emily.
To fulfil a promise he made to his dying wife, Paul sets out to visit Tritinos in an attempt to reclaim the family property. Help comes from unexpected sources, but his route is paved with unforeseen obstacles and local belief in a legend he knows to be untrue. His challenge to rumours that are entrenched in the island’s history brings about danger and hostility, and he realizes the prejudices stem from an allegation of betrayal.
Will uncovering the secret, ending the dispute and resolving old differences, bring healing for Paul and Emily ..... and hope for their future?
