Greek Shadows

by Marc Amfreville

Lucas, 20 years old, and his group of French friends spend a summer in Greece at the time of the military junta in 1969, a summer that will change Lucas's life forever. Haunted by a mysterious, faraway island, tormented by his feelings for a young political refugee whose life he wants to save at all costs, Lucas is about to cross dangerous lines.

 

Love, friendship, political ideals…Lucas will become interwoven and entangled within their ambiguities. 

 

Greek Shadows is a novel about what it means to find yourself and the price of facing truth.
