Maria's Island Summary

Maria's Island by Victoria Hislop

A dramatic and moving story set in the same world as the international bestseller The Island from the celebrated novelist Victoria Hislop.
The absorbing story of the Cretan village of Plaka and the tiny, deserted island of Spinalonga - Greece's former leper colony - is told to us by Maria Petrakis, one of the children in the original version of The Island. She tells us of the ancient and misunderstood disease of leprosy, exploring the themes of stigma, shame and the treatment of those who are different, which are as relevant for children as adults. Gill Smith's rich, full-colour illustrations will transport the reader to the timeless and beautiful Greek landscape and Mediterranean seascape.

Maria's Island Reviews

The tale is narrated by Maria, one of the children in Hislop's novel The Island, from which this engrossing yarn is skillfully adapted for younger readers. * The Daily Telegraph *
