Their revolution would ignite a continent...
An epic novel set during one of the most savage and dramatic moments in European history. Greece, 1824In the wild south, the people of the Mani have risen up against four hundred years of Ottoman rule.
But initial triumph leads to bitter feuding among the Greek victors and the Sultan sends his vassal, Ibrahim Pasha of Egypt, to invade. Burning everything in his path, he is on the point of victory. Only the intervention of the Great Powers of France, Russia and Britain can save Greece.
Hara, young daughter of a Maniot chief, is the fearless symbol of her people's spirit. When she rescues Greek Prince Tzanis from a shipwreck, on his way to deliver secret gold for the revolution, they fall in love but are forced apart by events. Yet a shared resolve to wreak vengeance on Turkish rule unites them again, and their heroism and sacrifice will ultimately inspire an unlikely band of men and women to join them in rescuing Greece.
Will their plan to involve the Great Powers succeed before Greece is destroyed by fire?
