The Caver

The Caver
Copyright (2014)

In The Caver, Claire, an American writer, returns to the island of Kithera, “for answers,” but certainty is difficult in the land of myth and “trickster” light. Even her new tutor, who possesses a "strange consonance" with the island, becomes for her, an object of intrigue. When an amiable new neighbour extends an invitation on the day they meet, Claire declines, indicating that she needs to be alone for a while, but subsequently is persuaded to attend a dinner party. There she meets George, a caver from Malta, and falls inexplicably in love. She travels to Crete and ventures alone up a mountain to the remote village where she can be with him near his project. Then the unexpected occurs. Claire comes to Greece in search of answers and finds, instead, a stubborn but beautiful mystery.

Carol Burnham has a master’s degree in English literature and has taught at colleges in the San Francisco Bay area.
