Daughters of the Labyrinth is a novel about a daughter’s passionate quest for the truth about what happened to her parents in Crete during the German occupation. It is also a sumptuous and sensuous evocation of Crete itself, its landscape and culture. Ruth Padel brings a poet’s eye to this world of great physical beauty and gnarled legacy.’ Colm Tóibín

Ri is a successful international artist who has worked in London all her life. When her English husband dies she turns to her Greek roots on Crete, island of mass tourism and ancient myth. There she discovers not only proud memories of resisting foreign occupation in the 1940s but a secret, darker history. Unearthing her parents’ stories transforms Ri’s understanding of her family and her country, her identity and her art.
