The Girl Under the Olive Tree by Leah Fleming
This is a drama based on the Second World War and the occupation of Crete. It is written as memories from the main people involved, as they go back to the island of Crete 60 years later. The story focuses on the life of an English debutante who wishes to make her own way in the world and ends up in Athens as the Germans make their crusade against the Greeks. She finds that she has useful skills that can help the natives and so decides to stay in Athens, against her fathers’ wishes. She has many close calls and meets many people, a few of which are also on the island for the 60th Anniversary remembrance.
This is a heart-wrenching story of love and loss, and of the cruelties of war. It goes into some detail of the efforts the local people had to put in to try and keep the country independent of the Germans, but also shows the occupation from a German perspective, showing that not all Germans believed in the Nazi cause. A very good, captivating book to listen to, especially if you like drama and suspense.
Thank you for looking
