Aphrodites War Summary


Aphrodites War by Andrea Busfield

The island is divided in two, but one man's love will never be compromised...It was Cyprus, 1955 - a war is raging and four Greek brothers are growing up to the familiar sounds of exploding bombs and sniper fire. Determined to avenge the death of his elder brother and to win the heart of his beloved Praxi, young Loukis joins a cell of schoolboy terrorists operating in the mountains. But when his cohorts blow themselves up in a freak accident, he returns home in shock, yearning for the warm embrace of his family - and of his sweetheart. But his adored Praxi is now married to someone else, and playing at her feet is a young toddler...Utterly compelling, infinitely absorbing, "Aphrodite's War" is an epic tale of an island at war with itself. Its warm-hearted, compassionate picture of the Encomidou family shows how, even with your people's future at stake, there is nothing so indomitable as the human heart.
