The Thread covers a period of little-known Greek (and, in part, Turkish) history. This multi-generational story is quite interesting, but the writing was uneven.

I loved this book. A family saga set over the generations. A real insight into the politics and life of Greece in 1900s through to the Second
World War and the subsequent Civil War. The story follows the lives of a few central characters, their loves and losses. Those who collaborated with the Germans and those who fought to the death against them.

A great read. Historical details WWII in a Greek city. Interesting characters and good writing. Hated to see it end.
