This Bright River

Little, Brown

In her award-winning debut novel,
Natalie Bakopoulos vividly illuminates a seminal yet little explored
moment in Greek history – the 1967 coup d’état, which ushered in
a 7-year-period of devastating brutality and repression. Set in
Athens and Paris, The Green Shore introduces sisters Anna and
Sophie, their widowed mother Eleni, and their uncle Mihalis, whose
heartbreaking stories play out against the backdrop of that turbulent
period. In Patrick Somerville’s follow-up to his acclaimed debut,
The Cradle, a man and a woman cross paths when both return,
for varying reasons, to the same small Wisconsin town. Could each be
exactly what the other needs? The weight of secrets, the price of
success, and the cost of love linger at the heart of this surprising,
unsettling, and deeply satisfying novel.
