Journal Entry 1 by wingBookworm-ladywing from Madrid, Madrid Spain on Monday, October 03, 2016
"Inspired by truth, the story that has captivated the world."

"This was not the start of a short trip to deliver supplies. It was the beginning of a one-way journey to start a new life. Life on a leper colony. Life on Spinalonga.
Fifty years later, making a life-changing journey of her own, Alexis Fielding feels the pull of the abandoned island. A distant shadow off the coast of Crete, she knows it holds the secrets to her mother's past, buried for so long but surely not forgotten..."

Thank you so much for this! Haven't read any Victoria Hislop but I've seen her around, looking forward to this one. I love the Beatles BCID label as well - tempted to make some myself..

Thanks very much, Harobed82! I can say straight away that I love the book as I read it two years ago just before going to Crete on a writing holiday :) We visited Spinalonga as well and I can warmly recommend it if you've ever in the area! Thanks also for the cute sticky notes!

This book came home with me from our local monthly meet-up in Helsinki. I was already considering the book when Annimanni shared that book was worth reading. Thank you for sharing this book!
