Summary "Boston, 2000. Calliope Notaris Brown receives a shocking phone call. Her beloved uncle Nestor has passed away, and now Callie must fly to Patras, Greece, to claim her inheritance. Callie's mother, Clio --with whom Callie has always had a difficult relationship--tries to convince her not to make the trip. Unsettled by her mother's strange behavior, and uneasy about her own recent engagement, Callie decides to escape Boston for the city of her childhood summers. After arriving at the heady peak of Carnival [and via flashbacks to the Greece of 1940], Callie begins to piece together what her mother has been trying to hide"--P. [4] of cover.
