Greece, 1869. Godwin Tudor, a young English photographer recently arrived in Athens, is intrigued by the mysterious British landowner Edgar Brooke, whose vast estate dominates the island of Pyroxenia. Godwin is enchanted by the breathtaking landscape and Brooke’s capricious daughter Lydia. But inadvertently he finds himself drawn into the centre of a dangerous political conspiracy. As events spiral out of control, Godwin does his best to play the diplomat in a terrifying international incident but the consequences prove more devastating than he can imagine.
