He reveals that his daughter Sally vanished from the island two years earlier and he has come to Crete to explore the baffling circumstances of her disappearance. For Davis there are painful unanswered questions. What happened to Sally? Who was to blame for her mysterious disappearance? Was it an accident?

From the author of the award-winning The Curative, The Crocus Hour is a spellbinding journey through shifting passages of time, posing questions about how well we really know those close to us.
