Set in Crete, Cally's Way explores the relationships between sex and love and the historical horrors that shape our identities. Cally is a twenty-five year old business graduate. Her mother, who was born in Crete but has always refused to talk about it, has died, leaving one instruction: before starting her first job, Cally should visit Crete. There she meets Oliver, a reticent, very attractive US Army deserter. A night of love awakens in Cally feelings she has never known. On leaving, she learns from a television in the Athens airport that the petroleum company she is to work for is killing people with water pollution in India. These two events demolish Cally's fragile equilibrium, setting her on a new, uncharted path back in Crete, which strips her of even her clothes before leading to deep love, a horrific family discovery, and a future she never would have imagined.

About the Author

Jane Bow grew up in Canada, the United States, Spain, England and Czechoslovakia. Her novels, ranging from true crime to mystery to love, explore the effect history's dramas have on our identity, whether we know about them or not. Cally's Way, published in 2014, interweaves Cally's story with that of her grandmother Callisto, who was a runner in the Cretan Resistance during the Germans' brutal World War II occupation of Greece. Kirkus called it "accomplished, lyrical... romantic but tough-minded." Cally's Way reached #2 on Edmonton's bestseller list and was invited to the U.K.'s Folkestone Book Festival. Jane's second novel, The Oak Island Affair, a 2008 Next Generation Indie Book Award finalist, was republished by Iguana in 2014. Her first novel, Dead and Living, was shortlisted for an Arthur Ellis Award.
