In the summer of 1972, Famagusta in Cyprus is the most desirable resort in the Mediterranean, a city bathed in the glow of good fortune. An ambitious couple are about to open the island's most spectacular hotel, where Greek and Turkish Cypriots work in harmony. Two neighbouring families, the Georgious and the Ozkans, are among many who moved to Famagusta to escape the years of unrest and ethnic violence elsewhere on the island. But beneath the city's facade of glamour and success, tension is building. When a Greek coup plunges the island into chaos, Cyprus faces a disastrous conflict. Turkey invades to protect the Turkish Cypriot minority, and Famagusta is shelled. Forty thousand people seize their most precious possessions and flee from the advancing soldiers. In the deserted city, just two families remain. This is their story.

Couldn't put it down -

If you love history with a bit of intrigue and suspense then this book will grip you like it did me.

It takes you from the start of family life, into the business and personal life of the characters without dwelling on too much detail in between.

Such an easy read that I finished it in 10 hours on holiday last week.

Informative and well written, one of those books that you hope they will make a movie out of in due course.
