Love and lust, contrasts and contradictions and, most of all, obsessions: all the ingredients of a story set against a background of the search for, and discovery of, family roots. Roots that, for Eugene, illegitimate son of Reginald Kreep-Potter,MoreLove and lust, contrasts and contradictions and, most of all, obsessions: all the ingredients of a story set against a background of the search for, and discovery of, family roots.

Roots that, for Eugene, illegitimate son of Reginald Kreep-Potter, take him into the murky world of the politics of the Second World War, the German invasion of Greece and the country’s internal struggle against the backdrop of impending civil war. Finding a mountain village where his uncle served under the Special Operations Executive (SOE) during the period 1940-46, he learns about traditional Greek village life and how the country has changed through its westernization.

Meanwhile Eugene’s long term partner, Sarah, daughter of Hector Hardattet, Bluffington’s surviving boatbuilder, has embarked upon her own trail searching both for the truth regarding her sexuality and, at the same time, following the route of her ancestor, Angus Mathieson. For, having been given a journal that is said he wrote describing a circumnavigation of Britain in the year of the Battle at Trafalgar, she unearths a link that leads both families back to a common thread.
