Synopsis

Compelled to fulfill her father's dying wish to find the half-sister he kept from her, Alexia arrives in her father's village of Diakofto on the edge of the Peloponnese. There she discovers a culture she knows nothing about, a country in financial crisis, and an extended family with too many secrets. The Sarinopoulos family has long been marked by tradgey, war, and a sham fanned by idle village gossip. Looming over Alexia's visit and the one trip back to Greece her father had taken twenty-five years earlier, is the tragedy of Kalavryta, a Second World War massacre that changed the family forever. Told in alternating voices of Alexia and Nicolai, who each return to Greece to mourn a loss and find soalce, Nicolai's Daughters uncovers the secret shame that festers in a family, refusing to heal until the truth is revealed.
