The Enlightenment of Nina Findlay

by Andrea Gillies

All her life, Nina Findlay has been in a love triangle with two Italian brothers – Paolo, whom she marries, and Luca, who remains her best friend – until a dramatic series of events changes everything, apparently for good.

Estranged from both of them, facing a future alone, Nina escapes to a tiny Greek island. When an accident lands her in the local hospital, she finds herself telling her story to a mysteriously attentive doctor, and is enlightened about the past and about herself in ways she couldn’t have imagined.
