Bright and dark adventures, love and abandonment, sadness and happiness, sun and moon.
The heroine wanders in search of her own love. She names it Odysseus since only within the circles of his name love can fit. Sometimes she finds it and loses it at others.
Her name is Helen. Helen of Troy, Helen of passion, the controversial heroine of war. From an early age she has understood that life means war. She has experienced her father's abandonment, having thus lost her first Odysseus. Others follow. Women figures come to conflict with male ideals, sudden events shed light on a sense of playfulness in life, coincidences make her suffer and on other occasions give her redemption...
Together with Helen, Liza and Manos, loyal friends and fellow-fearers, struggle in search of their own search. They struggle with passion to conquer what the wish for. Finally, what each one of them accomplishes is that very surprise that life itself holds.
For life itself holds more imagination than literature...
She has published literary articles in newspapers and magazines and is a doctoral candidate at the Ionian University.
Passion is her fourth book. Angyra Publications has published her book, Love Wears Wings of Silk.
Where does sadness go after having left our eyes? A question Petra asks herself. Memory is an endlessly torturing knife. Especially when you keep delaying and always saying, "I shall remember to talk to you tomorrow", "I shall remember to kiss you tomorrow". What guarantee for immortality can a lethargic life give you? A question Lola asks herself as an "Ideological Suspect" in the ‘pink pages'. Yet, people see only appearances. And, apparently, these women never met. Regardless of the fact that all of us hide a persecutor inside.
The parallel lives of two women who try to discover their lost selves, to redeem lost time in order to solve the enigma of the world. Petra by cultivating hyacinths, isolated in her rock house. Lola by writing small stories in an attempt to turn the past into eternity. After all, defeat has no other solution but to always talk: about secure windows that never open, about the woman who became a column of salt, about a man who is always drowning. Because you never know how you will be when the trip is over.
