Description:
May 1941 and the island of Crete is invaded by paratroopers from the air. 60 years later, Lois West and her young son, Alex, invite feisty Great Aunt Pen to a special 85th birthday celebration on Crete, knowing she hasn't been back since the war. When word spreads of her visit, and old friends come to greet her, Lois and Alex are caught up in her pilgrimage and the journey which leads her to a reunion with the friend she thought she had lost - and the truth behind a secret buried in the past.

Somewhere in this there is a good fist of story, the basic skeleton is there but the writing style and execution is left wanting. It's overlong, lacks depth, and characters underdeveloped. A average read for me that sadly didn't cut the mustard, I skimmed loads and missed nothing.
