A Dark Enchantment
In 1869, Godwin Tudor, a young English photographer sets out to taste the classical beauty and exotic wilderness of Greece. Whilst in Athens he encounters the charismatic and maverick British landowner Edgar Brooke, whose vast estate dominates Pyroxenia, an island north of Attica. Although Brooke is ill-mannered, has many political enemies and is branded a social outcast, Godwin is intrigued by him, and sets out to visit. Whilst staying there Godwin finds himself enchanted by the breathtaking landscape and captivated by Brooke's capricious young daughter Lydia. Suddenly embroiled in a whirlwind of passion and chicanery, Godwin inadvertently finds himself at the centre of a dangerous political conspiracy. As events spiral out of control, Godwin does his best to play the diplomat in a terrifying international incident. His life hangs in the balance all the while his heart is being torn apart by the girl he has left behind in the spellbound forests of Pyroxeniaa A haunting tale of love, adventure and intrigue, A Dark Enchantment marks the debut of an exciting new storyteller.
