Description

'The half-forgotten island of Cephallonia rises improvidently and inadvisedly from the Jonian Sea...immense in antiquity...' The local doctor's history of his island sets the scene for this modern epic. It is 1941 and Captain Antonio Corelli, a young Italian officer, is posted to the Greek island as part of the occupying forces. At first he is ostracised by the locals, but as a conscientious soldier, whose main aim is to have a peaceful war, he proves to be civilised, humorous - and a consummate musician. When the doctor's daughter's letters to her fiance go unanswered the working of the eternal triangle seems inevitable. But can this fragile love survive this war of bestial savagery as the lines are drawn between invader and defender?show more
