About the Author:

Victoria Hislop read English at Oxford, and worked in publishing, PR and as a journalist before becoming a novelist. She is married with two children. Victoria acted as script consultant on a 26-part TV adaptation of The Island in Greece, which achieved record ratings for Greek television. Victoria was Newcomer of the Year at the Galaxy British Book Awards 2007, and her second novel, The Return was also a Number One bestseller. Her third novel, The Thread, was a hardback and paperback bestseller, and was also widely acclaimed. Victoria's books have been translated into more than 25 languages.

Review:

Modern Greek history, from the Nazi occupation to the present-day economic crisis and riots, is integral to many of the stories. The style is limpid, echoed in the simple line drawings that accompany each tale. They slip down like ice cream on a hot day * Independent * 'A book to lose yourself in' * We Love This Book * 'An evocative exploration of the past's hold on a family, with an exquisite love story at its centre' * Good Housekeeping * 'Meticulously researched and compellingly told' * Woman & Home * 'A book to lose yourself in' * We Love This Book * 'An evocative exploration of the past's hold on a family, with an exquisite love story at its centre' * Good Housekeeping * 'Meticulously researched and compellingly told' * Woman & Home * 'A brilliant page turner and destined to become a reading group staple, THE THREAD is rich with drama and historical detail' * Glamour * Her best novel yet * Scotsman * 'This is storytelling at its best and just like a tapestry, when each thread is sewn into place, so emerge the layers and history of relationships past and present' * Sunday Express * 'Fresh, tenacious and rather intrepid' * Independent * 'Fast-paced narrative and utterly convincing sense of place' * Guardian * 'Sweeping, magnificently detailed and ambitious' * The Sunday Times *
