When 27-year-old Eleni Gage sets out for her family's native Greece to rebuild her grandparents’ house in the remote but beautiful village of Lia, she wants to transform the site of a tragic past into a home for the future.
Her grandmother, also called Eleni, was imprisoned and tortured there during the Greek Civil War. After a shaky start, as the house grows so does Eleni's love for Lia and the villagers. Part travel memoir, part family saga, 'North Of Ithaka' is a funny, moving and fascinating journey home.
