"A rare treat: an elegantly written debut about a family mystery set during wartime, the slipperiness of memory and the challenges of forgiveness. Plus, we get to go to Greece! What more could you want from a novel? Read it, read it!"—Jenna Blum, New York Times bestselling author of Those Who Save Us
In her stunning debut novel, The Clover House, Henriette Lazaridis Power presents a richly textured story about a young woman who uncovers the secret to a family tragedy in wartime Greece when she returns to her mother's native country to sort out an inheritance. It is a moving and evocative novel about the search for identity, the challenges of love, and the shared history that defines a family. This multi-layered, character-driven novel hits close to home and explores subjects near to Power’s heart.
As a first-generation Greek American, Power chose to write a story about the search for identity that centers around a woman torn between two cultures, longing to relate and feel “at home” in one settled place.
