Hearts of Stone

Simon Scarrrow (http://www.scarrow.co.uk/ and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Scarrow) is best known for his Eagle series of Roman military fiction set in the territories of the Roman Empire, covering the second invasion of Britain and the subsequent prolonged campaign undertaken by the rump of the Julio-Claudian dynasty. To date there are thirteen books in the series, with the 13th released in 2014, and Brothers in Blood and Britannia due later this year.

For a different historical period reach for his novel of June this year. This is powerful new fiction set in the Second World War. Scarrow here brings the fierce courage of the men and women of the Greek Resistance vividly to life. In the perfect summer of 1938 on the Greek island of Lefkas, three young people are  untroubled by the simmering politics of Europe. Peter, visiting from Germany while his father leads an archaeological dig, has become close friends with locals Andreas and Eleni. As the world slides towards conflict and Peter is forced to leave, they swear to meet again. By 1942 Andreas and Eleni have joined the partisan forces resisting the German invasion. Peter has indeed returned – but as a well-informed German army intelligence officer. Friendship formed in peace will turn into a desperate battle between enemies sworn to sacrifice everything for the countries that they love…  Immerse yourself in this heart-wrenching stuff if you can bear it.
