Summary

The truth will surprise you.... 

On the island of Cyprus, in the small seaside town of Larnaka, three childhood friends have reunited for the funeral of Katerina, the much-loved old woman who had a profound effect on their lives. 

Eleni, Marianna and Adonis grew up together, as close as siblings. Although from humble beginnings - a housemaid from the age of 13 - Katerina's love, wisdom and guidance helped shape them all. 

Her loss leaves the friends bereft, but the funeral is not just a time to mourn and remember. Adonis' mother decides that with Katerina's death comes the time to share the family's secrets and answer the riddles of their childhood. A story of deception, forbidden love and undying loyalty unravels. What she reveals will change everything....
