This was Vita Sackville-West’s second novel, the superbly romantic story of a young, Byronic Englishman and the woman he loves. Together they travel to Greece, where they become central figures in a political revolution, an idyll of love, and a drama of jealousy and betrayal. The scene is richly described, the action is exciting, the romance is captured brilliantly and with intense feeling. Yet this novel was suppressed—for it told the truth.
