Finding Ithaka - Book Review

I like to thank Netgalley for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review. I like Greek mythology since my college days. I have read a short account of Odysseus and his journey home after the Trojan War.

In this novel "Finding Ithaka" written by Anna Harvey, the author has excellently handled the story of Odysseus and the story of Dr.Thea Sefton into one fantastic page-turner. The characters in the life of Odysseus and Thea have resemblances.

An archaeological expedition team along with Thea comes to a Greek Island Kefalonia which they believe that the lost palace of legendary Odysseus is somewhere on this particular island.

And also Thea is not new to Greece as her lost love Dimitri Kampitsis is the sponsor for the expedition. Why Dimitri left Thea 20 years back and did they find the Odysseus palace forms the rest of the story.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.
