FAQs -- PLEASE READ ALL:
Who is Catherine Dunne?
Oh gee, where do we start? Since 1997, she's written 10 novels -- THE YEARS THAT FOLLOWED being her most recent -- and one non-fiction. Per Wikipedia (yup, she's listed there too), "She was born in Dublin and studied English and Spanish atTrinity College, Dublin, before becoming a teacher. In 2013, she was awarded the Giovanni Boccaccio International Prize for Fiction for "The Things We Know", which was published in Italy as "Quel che ora sappiamo." In short, she's a pretty amazing author. And wait until you hear her speak and read snippets from THE YEARS THAT FOLLOWED. You'll be spellbound.
What's the book, "The Years That Followed" about?
Calista is 17, beautiful and headstrong. She meets the handsome, older Alexandros and in an instant, her whole life changes. Alexandros is exciting, magnetic – and rich. He sweeps Calista off her feet. She leaves her safe, affluent Dublin home for a new life in Cyprus alongside her new husband and his family who treat her with some suspicion.
Meanwhile, Pilar is in Madrid. Desperate to leave the grinding poverty of her life in rural Extremadura, she moves to the capital. There, she meets a man who offers her excitement and opportunity. Petros charms Pilar and she begins to imagine a future for both of them, together, although she knows it’s impossible.
Unknown to both women, tragic events are unfolding which will inextricably link their lives in a way that neither could have imagined. These events will change them and their families forever.
Inspired by Greek myth, THE YEARS THAT FOLLOWED is a compelling tale of two women, thousands of miles apart, whose lives are thrown into turmoil by the power of love – and the desire for revenge.
