Proud to see my heroine, Rodanthe aka Kritsotopola, Girl of Kritsa inside a very special bookstore. Thank you for the invitation Sally Cronin. Funny how blogging works… I met Sally via her post about a member of her family who visited #Kritsa in the early days of tourism. Coincidently, the piece was set in the small cafe that inspired my fictional one at the heart of village life. X
About the bookThroughout her childhood exploits, the feisty daughter, Rodanthe, of Kritsa’s pappas (priest), yearns for her father’s approval without appreciating his efforts to keep her safe under Ottoman oppression.Years later, the ruling Pasha orders Rodanthe’s kidnap intent on making her his wife. Determined not to yield, Rodanthe tricks the Pasha, and then flees to the mountains dressed as a young man.
