Broken Threads of Hope Book Description:

Told through a number of profound voices, this intriguing collection of six short stories recounts events from the lives of four generations of a Greek family who experience poverty, violence, war, and tragedy from pre-World War II until the present. On the heels of World War II, Eleni is a young girl living in a refugee camp in northern Greece where she meets and falls in love with Kostas, a fellow refugee. The tragedy of war binds them together, but in the end proves a significant threat to their union. Their son, Thanos, grows up with little regard for societal rules and chooses to earn a living as a fisherman who wanders from coastal village to coastal village. But a bizarre entanglement with a young woman possessing supernatural abilities may have deadly consequences for Thanos. Thanos's daughter, Rose, is a Canadian immigrant. After she discovers a past lover's betrayal and becomes the victim of a violent armed robbery, she struggles with her mental health and plots revenge. Written in the genre of magic realism, Broken Threads of Hope explores the obstacles and barriers inherent in life. Author Margo Georgakis portrays one Greek family's struggle to transcend their physical environment to find healing and retribution.
