Robiyan Eastyabout this book: Natural story teller, artist and Greek-American John Panopoulos could never get a handle on the business of marketing his works, so I (his publisher) am doing it for him. Vendetta in Arcadia is set in rural Greece in the late 1800s and is based on stories John heard from the old folk there. Vendetta in Arcadia is the first book of a quartet, originally written as one very long book, entitled THE BRAIDS OF KAMINARI, with a striking cover he designed himself. In 19th century Greece belief in God was the norm, side by side with hot passions.
Revolving around the true story of two young men from feuding families, it depicts the intertwined lives of many unforgettable characters and especially the far-reaching consequences of a vendetta that had claimed many lives and refused to stop. There is an extraordinary priest with magic in his fingers and two equally gifted lady healers in their own ways.
This is a truly human tale without gratuitous sex and violence, assassins, secret agents, rapes, etc. Instead it has a a deep spirituality, with other-worldly happenings that beggar belief and yet are seamlessly integrated into the lives of the people. You will have to decide for yourself how much is treu and how much is from John's fertile creativity.
