The Siege by Marilyn Baron reviewed by Susan Coryell In 1944 a Nazi invasion of Crete wiped out virtually the entire Jewish population; today only a dozen Jews reside in Crete—just two of the startling facts I gleaned reading Marilyn Baron’s latest release, The Siege. The author successfully weaves fact with fiction, the past with the present in this fascinating novel. Contemporary young American artist, Theia Constas, sets out for Greece at her late grandmother’s request to visit the site of Jewish annihilation. Though the grandmother escaped to America, Theia’s grandfather, an artist, perished in the Tanais, bombed at sea. Theia’s visit reveals some secrets about her family and what happened to them during World War II. The book opens with a siege of the hotel in Italy where Theia and her travel group are staying. She finds herself inadvertently locked into a room with fellow traveler Wade Bingham. Falling for Theia, Wade travels on to Greece with her and a romance ensues. When Theia abruptly leaves for New York to try to find her grandfather’s paintings in the Museum of Modern Art, Wade wages his own siege to reunite with her. I highly recommend this fast-paced novel to readers who like historical backgrounds and rich descriptions of exotic regions. The romance adds spice and the ending satisfies. Another excellent Mariyn Baron offering.
