Review ~ Aphrodite's Tears by Hannah Fielding

London Wall Publishing
25th January 2018

In the summer of 1977, Oriel Anderson is nursing a broken heart and goes to the Greek island of Helios where she hopes to fulfil her lifelong dream of joining an archaeological diving team. However, making her way in this male dominated activity is going to test Oriel's considerable resolve to the limit. When she finds that the island's enigmatic owner, Damian Lekkas, is attracted to her, Oriel has some difficult decisions to make. Will Oriel be guided by her head or her heart?

At its heart, Aphrodite's Tears is a passionate and romantic love story with a fascinating and complex mystery. Combining passionate romance and Greek legends, a story emerges which has its roots in ancient mythology but which also has a place very firmly in the 1970s. What then follows is a beautifully written romantic saga which has all the trademarks of this talented author's ability to weave together a magical tale.

What I love about this author's writing is her ability to take the reader on a journey of discovery whilst at the same time giving us a wonderfully passionate story. The romantic connection between Oriel and Damian is strong and passionate and yet, the darker elements of the story are equally as compelling and add depth and richness to the narrative. 

As always, with this author’s stories, time and place come beautifully alive. The stunning Greek setting acts as a glorious backdrop to a story which is rich in romance and alive with all the sunshine and culture of this beautiful country.
