Icon of Gold
by Teresa Crane
A forbidden love torn between 1950s Britain and Greece
Cathy Kotsikas is as unsettled as anyone in postwar Britain. A hasty marriage has become an exhausting clash of personalities. Leon, her Greek husband, as charming as he is ruthless and self-centred, understands neither her mildly eccentric character nor her need for freedom.
Cathy’s sanctuary is Sandlings, a remote cottage on the barren Suffolk coast left to her by her grandfather. For Leon, however, his business in London and the restoration of his family home in Greece are of paramount importance.
When Nikos, Leon’s son, arrives from New York, he is drawn to Cathy from the first, and she to him. Neither sees the danger of the attraction until it is too late. Their chemistry becomes a spiral of passion and betrayal culminating in the wild sunlit beauty of the Greek countryside. But how will it end…?
From Teresa Crane, comes this searing and romantic story for readers of Dinah Jefferies, Santa Montefiore or Victoria Hislop.
