Out of Darkness Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Out of Darkness

"Out of Darkness is two books under one cover and extremely fascinating. In the first book, In the Blood of the Greeks, we meet Eva Muller, the daughter of a German commander stationed in Larissa, Greece. Eva is a person with a great deal of pain in her life. She meets up with firebrand Zoe Lambros, a young woman with a desire for vengeance. Mary weaves a story about these two women that show a great deal of love and a lot of realism. It's a very well written book that allows you to witness their relationship grow against the backdrop of the end of World War ll for Greece.

The second part of the novel, Land of Milk and Honey, jumps a year into the future where the two women decide to immigrate to Australia. They face new dangers. A thoroughly good read. I look forward to reading more about Zoe and Eva."
