Lena Manta, is a well-known Greek author, quite popular in Greece and elsewhere. Her book, The House by the River, is the first of her books to be published in English. I had the honor of being the first to publish a review of this wonderful book on BarnesandNoble.com. It’s a saga that extends from WWII through the 1960s or 70s.
