Join Georgina Godwin as she talks to ‘Sunday Times’ bestselling author Victoria Hislop. Her first novel, ‘The Island’, was inspired by a visit to Spinalonga, the abandoned Greek leprosy colony. The book became an international bestseller and a 26-part television adaptation was screened in Greece. Now firmly established as one of our best-loved authors, she returns to Greece for her gripping new novel, ‘Those Who Are Loved’, set against the backdrop of German occupation, the subsequent civil war and a military dictatorship.
