She had chosen the dazzling island of Santorini, remote and inaccessible as her own heart. The holiday was to be a solitary experience. But that was before Joanna met Ulysses, the mistreated little donkey.

Editorial Reviews

New York Times Book Review
“Simple, elegant. . . . Miss Sarton knows how to be tender and romantic, melancholy and amusing, all at once.”
Book Week
“Miss Sarton is particularly adept at presenting intelligent women intelligently: Joanna is a fine addition to her gallery of portraits. She is famous, too, for catching the flavor of background, and she gives us the fresh, gull-white, wind-bright bravery of the Greek islands indelibly. She is an aristocrat whose patent is clarity of mind.”
