Where the Wandering Ends: A Novel of Corfu (Paperback)
A vivid, character-driven historical saga set in Greece at the end of WWII and on the verge of the Greek Civil War. Fans of Ariel Lawhon's books about little-known history will love this sweeping, multigenerational story of familial love and loyalty against all odds.
Corfu, 1946: Living in a poor village in northern Greece, 10-year-olds Marco and Katerina are the best of friends. But as their country erupts into war, the two are separated: Katerina's family flees on foot, desperate to find somewhere safe. Marco is sent to one of Queen Frederica's children's villages, her defiant stance against the incoming communists.
At their final goodbye, Katerina and Marco promise to find their way back to the village, and to each other. This haunting childhood vow launches events that will take decades to unravel.
Where the Wandering Ends beautifully blends real Corfiot history with Greek mythology. Spanning multiple decades, this heart-breaking yet uplifting story reminds us of the tenacity of those who have lost everything and the enduring power of home.
