My favorite historical fiction revolves around convincing characters in vibrant (and well-researched) settings-- an elusive cocktail that transforms dry chronology into an unforgettable and informative narrative. The Green Shore succeeds on these fronts: sympathetic (mainly female), relatable characters facing familiar problems in an unfamiliar and distressing climate. I knew nothing about the 1967 military coup in Greece. Now I feel that I witnessed a small portion.
