The truth will surprise you...On the day of Katerina's funeral in Larnaka, Cyprus, three childhood friends reunite for the first time in years to say farewell to the beloved old woman who profoundly influenced their lives. Eleni, Marianna and Orestis grew up together, as close as siblings, in their small, quaint seaside town. Originally hired as a household maid at just 13, Katerina became a pillar of their community, seeing the town change from a bustling, fashionable port to the quiet tourist destination it is today. The friends can hardly imagine a Larnaka without her. But the funeral is not just a time to reminisce. Oresti's mother, Sonia, decides that with Katerina's death comes the time to unburden herself from all the family secrets. What she reveals will change everything, and how the three friends perceive their lives. A web of secrets, deception, forbidden love, and tenderness unravels before them in Secrets Under the Sun by Nadia Marks.
