On The Island Of Aphrodite: Where Love was born and worshiped, strife, war and turmoil prevail. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: Two typical families, one from each of the two ethnic communities in Cyprus were destined to live side by side in harmony for many years. Their children were compelled by the colonial rulers to attend segregated ethnic schools where they learned that Greeks and Turks hated and mistrustedeach other. The two families are used to typify the relationships between the two ethnic communities. When the population stopped thinking of themselves as Cypriots and thought they were Greeks and Turks, the harmony in the Island was destroyed. The book chronicles events from the struggle for independence from the British until the Turkish invasion and forced partition of the Island into Greek and Turkish sectors. The British colonialism and its divide and rule policy, aggravated by the Greek desire for union with Greece, created suspicion and mistrust among the two communities. The struggle that followed caused the partition of the Island into two entities with dividing borders, and made its people refugees in their own land. Throughout the conflict, there are many instances when the human spirit triumphed and love survived on the Island of Aphrodite, where it was born.
Product Description: An epic love story between two young adults of opposing cultures is used to chronicle the struggles between their respective communities to coexist against centuries old prejudices and external interference.
