What the Critics Say about Helena


Acclaim for Helena: an Odyssey


“A big, colourful and emotional roller coaster – a true odyssey – and one with an epic historical backdrop.” … Giles Milton, author of ‘Paradise Lost: Smyrna, 1922,and seven other books of non-fiction


A moving family saga that begins in Anatolia, spans a century, and crosses several continents. The intimacy of the story telling is a poignant counterpoint to the turbulence of historical events that frame this compelling narrative …Caroline Finkel, author of 'Osman's Dream' and co-author of 'The Evliya Çelebi Way'
