Summary
Spanning the years 1919-1949, this begins with refugees from Odessa settling on a piece of land that was promised to them on Greece's misty northern plains. The foundling Eleni falls in love with her adoptive brother Alexis, but is forced to marry his widowed father. Eleni flees with Alexis to the nearby port of Thessaloniki. As the unrest of the 1930s pits fascism against leftism, Alexis departs for America and leaves Eleni behind to bear the brunt of political repression and civil war
