Synopsis

With a new introduction by Polly Samson, Sunday Times bestselling author of A THEATRE FOR DREAMERS

'Gorgeous... the written equivalent of lying in the sun eating figs' India Knight, Sunday Times

'That summer we bought big straw hats. Maria's had cherries around the rim, Infanta's had forget-me-nots, and mine had poppies as red as fire. . .'


Three Summers
is a warm and tender tale of three sisters growing up in the countryside near Athens before the Second World War. Living in a ramshackle old house with their divorced mother are flirtatious, hot-headed Maria, beautiful but distant Infanta, and dreamy and rebellious Katerina, through whose eyes the story is mostly observed. Over three summers, the girls share and keep secrets, fall in and out of love, try to understand the strange ways of adults and decide what kind of adults they hope to become.

'The sun has disappeared from books these days... You are one of those who pass it on' Albert Camus to Margarita Liberaki

'
The literary equivalent of a sun-soaked holiday in Greece' Culture Whisper

'A leisurely, large-hearted coming-of-age novel, earthy and innocent, nostalgic and beautifully rendered' Kirkus

'A dreamy, cinematic tapestry of Greek village life' NPR
