Aphrodite - priest's wife, matriarch, illiterate - has lived in her village in the Peloponnese for eighty-six years. Her struggle and hardship have been echoed by national and international upheavals, by war, dictatorship and famine. In writing of her mother-in-law's life, Gillian Bouras recounts her own difficulties as an educated, independent Westerner coming to terms with a woman so culturally different and so domestically powerful.
