Synopsis

Victoria Hislop’s Those Who Are Loved is another sure-fire bestseller set amid tumultuous Mediterranean history. Themis survives the Nazi occupation of Greece only to become embroiled in the ensuing civil war. Her communist connections land her in a prison where she’s forced to give birth. Sensitive and insightful about women’s experience of the trauma of war, Hislop shows she's at the top of her game. She talks to James Runcie.
