Hard Truths (Item# NOPSSKLALH)
How many truths can a book of fiction hide? It is November, 2015, in Massachussets, USA. Along with her mother’s will, a young student, Agnes Markou, will also take delivery of a book. In its pages are all her mother’s secrets. Those she never dared to tell anyone while she was alive - secrets of a life that was marked by unappeased passions, raging romances and unresolved crimes. Through Dimitris Dimitriadis’ writings, a man who had met and known Theodora Markou as only a few had done and had hated her more than anyone else, Agnes will find herself in Athens in the 1990s and the years of her mother’s youth. When the mysterious tale reaches its end, the young girl’s journey to Greece becomes a necessity. With her return to the scene of the crime, the dark heroes of the book will take on flesh and bones. But when the truths that are hidden in a deadly story are more than the fictions, then the twists and turns may prove to be fatal…

Story without a Name (Item# NOPSISXOONO)
I know that I am mad, but love makes people mad… It is June, 1908, and Penelope Delta, the pioneer of Greek children’s literature, finds herself in a sanatorium on the outskirts of Vienna. She is a woman with a maculated life. She was sent to this asylum of tortured souls, far from her daughters, to forget Ion Dragoumis, the charming diplomat she so wildly loved - the man who was the reason for the rupture in her marriage. His visit, there, however, changes everything. With the backdrop of green wilderness and the medieval cobbled streets of central Europe, she will fight for the release of her heart, living three days with him which will mark her forever. Thirty-three year later, in April 1941, the Nazis enter Athens and Penelope, in the living room of her house in Kifissia, takes a look at her life, having come to a grim decision - to be reunited with the man who had been taken from her… Story without a name is a deeply emotional and moving novel about passion and loss, about love and memory, about family commitments, the darkness of war, and some of the most dramatic moments of modern Greek history. Based on the author’s diaries, Stefanos Dandolos pays tribute the fragile psyche of the most important Greek female author of the twentieth century.
