As she tries to rebuild the ramshackle home, Heavenly makes firm friends with Anthi, a young woman from the village and Christos, the handsome and charismatic young builder. But the dark clouds of war are gathering and the island will become a crucible of violence and bloodshed in the days to come. For Heavenly, her friends and family, it will be the greatest test they have ever known.

Superb performance by Sian Thomas
The beauty of Crete, it's people and the hardship, but a community so well described of that time before and during the last war. A sensitive, charming yet a time brutal narrative. I thoroughly embraced the book. If you have never been to Crete, the island where God has his home, this book will maybe give you a special respect for it.
Such a beautiful story.

A marvellous Book
Would you consider the audio edition of The House of Dust and Dreams to be better than the print version?
Difficult to say! I read the sequel and didn't enjoy it as much as this one.
What did you like best about this story?
Having lived in Greece for many years I enjoyed the characterisation of the local Greek villagers, which was so true to life. The story was very moving.
What does Sian Thomas bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Sian Thomas is an excellent narrator and brings the story to life.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The part that moved me most was when Heavenly had to give up both her baby and the love of her life.
