That summer we bought big straw hats. Maria’s had cherries around the rim, Infanta’s had forget-me-nots, and mine had poppies as red as fire. . .’

Three Summers is a warm and tender tale of three sisters growing up in the countryside near Athens before the Second World War. Living in a ramshackle old house with their divorced mother are flirtatious, hot-headed Maria, beautiful but distant Infanta, and dreamy and rebellious Katerina, through whose eyes the story is mostly observed. Over three summers, the girls share and keep secrets, fall in and out of love, try to understand the strange ways of adults and decide what kind of adults they hope to become.

‘A dreamy modernist gem of a novel… elegant and striking’ Publishers Weekly

‘A leisurely, large-hearted coming-of-age novel, earthy and innocent, nostalgic and beautifully rendered’ Kirkus

‘A dreamy, cinematic tapestry of Greek village life’ NPR
