Tears from the Sun : A Cretan Journey
In Tears from the Sun we follow the life of Kate, a writer living in the traditional Cretan village of Vrahassi. She is visited by the spirit of Rhamu, a Minoan Prince. Rhamu asks Kate to help reunite him with Sisi, his lost Princess. Kate sees in her dreams how the Palace of Malia was destroyed, by magic, necromancy, and a powerful Emerald Crystal. In following her quest, she uncovers many secrets, not least, one which is closely guarded by monks of the Orthodox Church, at a Monastery on Mount Athos. There are many theories of how the Minoan Civilization ended - maybe Kate has the answer. Her relationships, both sexual and Platonic, are grass-root, gutsy and very revealing.
