The House by the River
by Lena Manta and Gail Holst-Warhaft




Overview -

From acclaimed Greek writer Lena Manta comes an emotionally powerful saga following five young women as they realize that no matter where life leads them, the only constant is home.

Theodora knows she can't keep her five beautiful daughters at home forever--they're too curious, too free spirited, too like their late father. And so, before each girl leaves the small house on the riverside at the foot of Mount Olympus, Theodora makes sure they know they are always welcome to return.

Having survived World War II, the Nazi occupation of Greece, and her husband's death, Theodora now endures the twenty-year-long silence of her daughters' absence. Her children have their own lives--they've married, traveled the world, and courted romance, fame, and even tragedy. But as they become modern, independent women in pursuit of their dreams, Theodora knows they need her--and each other--more than ever. Have they grown so far apart that they've forgotten their childhood home, or will their broken hearts finally lead them back again?
