Real-life Heroines of Grecian Past Inspire Perfect Summer Read

PRLog - Jun. 11, 2014 - PETERBOROUGH, Canada -- In a summer that's poised to be filled with stories of superheroes leaping tall buildings and the like, many readers are seeking out summer fare that focuses on heroes of a different kind. A new and innovative novel by author Jane Bow is set to top summer reading lists with a story of heroism firmly grounded in the real-life experiences of women in WWII Greece.

Cally's Way, Bow's third novel, is a rare breed of contemporary fiction that delves into the historical realities of life in Nazi-occupied Crete. Interweaving the story of a young woman, Cally, who is seeking to demystify her own past, with that of her grandmother Callisto, Bow unearths some of the Second World War’s least talked-about heroes: the women of the Cretan Resistance.

"Greece is one of those exotic vacations we all think about romantically. And having been fortunate to spend as much time there as I have, I can attest to the fact that it is a truly magical place. But as a tourist or a vacationer, there is a great deal of the past that you simply won't hear about,” says the author, who herself goes to Crete every year.

While writing Cally’s Way, Bow found she was able to craft precisely the kind of work she likes to pack in her suitcase for summer travelling:

“I wanted to give readers a great love/adventure story, and the opportunity to delve into the country’s tough and colourful beauty, but I also wanted to be able to share with them an important and dramatic part of its history. Readers both here and in Crete are telling me the novel is gripping, taking them right into the heart of the place and its people, and making them want to take a trip there themselves!”

Cally’s Way, published by Iguana Books, is available in both print and e-book versions through Amazon. For more information about Jane and her work, visit www.janebow.com
