Aphrodite’s Child

Aphrodite’s Child

Author(s): Sarah Catherine Knights

Location(s): Cyprus

Genre(s): Fiction

Aphrodite’s Child is the captivating story of a woman’s life-changing summer in Cyprus, where the bonds of family loyalty clash with forbidden love.

Emily Blackwell was a teacher, a devoted wife and mother but when she joins her husband on a military base in Cyprus, her ordinary life spirals out of control.

At first she feels out of place as an officer’s wife but as she begins to embrace her newfound freedom, she grows in confidence, tries new things and alters her appearance. At one of many social events, a chance encounter thrusts her into a passionate and overwhelming affair that leads her to a version of herself she hardly recognises.

She loses sight of everything she once held dear: her husband, her children, her friends and ultimately herself.

She has to make an impossible choice – between a new love and her family. Will she choose what she knows is the right thing to do … or follow her heart?
