This is a very famous book that has been a best seller for 20 years. Finally, I got around to reading it.
In the book "Eleni" I learned a lot about
what shaped modern day Greece and how it was impacted by World War Two
and the Greek Civil War. It gives great insight into what life was like
in rural Greece during this period. Of course I always wondered what was
happening in Nisyros during these times as I read the accounts of Lia,
the small town where the author's family lived.
The author lives now in Massachusetts. That is the state where I grew up and lived for 30 years. Now I am reading the sequel to the book called: "A Place for Us." This is the story about the author's immigration to the USA and what is was like living in a new country.
There is also a movie out called "Eleni" that I saw years ago and would now like to see again.
