Four strangers, with nothing in common but a need to escape, meet in a Greek taverna high above the small village of Aghia Anna. From Ireland, America, Germany and England, they have each left their homes and their old lives, when a shocking tragedy throws them unexpectedly together.
Nights of Rain and Stars
‘They were still talking as the first stars came into the sky…’
Four strangers meet at a taverna on a beautiful Greek island, with nothing in common except a need to escape. But over one magical summer they’ll discover that sometimes, the people who understand you the best can be the ones who don’t know you at all…
Fiona left her nursing career in Ireland to be with the man everyone thinks is wrong for her. Elsa fled Germany and her high-powered television job once she learned what the man she loved was hiding from her. Thomas mourns his failed marriage and misses his young son in California, while David yearns to reconcile with his family in England without having to go into the family business.
Chance has brought them together, and together they will find new ways of looking at the lives they left behind.
