Natalia and Christina

The temperature’s rising in the Mediterranean…

Greece, the 1990s.


Natalia and Eugenios were once very much in love.

But now their marriage is more like a nightmare than the fairy tale it once was.

Her childhood friend Anna thinks she’s crazy.

Eugenios is a wonderful man, but Natalia has grown to detest his long nocturnal walks, his love of poetry…

She wants a man who’s successful and ambitious.

But when she suggests a divorce, she is appalled to find Eugenios, who has fallen in love with another woman, is more than happy to agree.

And suddenly the very things that drove her crazy about him are the things she misses most.

As Eugenios divides his time between Natalia and his new love – a talented musician named Sybil – Natalia starts planning how to get her husband back.

And she knows only one thing will work…


Christina and Alexandros are madly in love.

For Christina, it is a love that consumes her entire life.

She is nothing without Alexandros, a man from a once noble but now impoverished family.

With Christina by his side, the liquidation of assets stops and new wealth is starts to build.

Everything is working out, or so she thinks…

When Alexandros takes up with another woman, Nausica, Christina is left heartbroken and angry.

But pride keeps her going and soon Alexandros is wondering if he’s made the right decision after all.

Is it too late to rescue what they once had?

Or is their perfect union lost forever…?

In Natalia and Christina enter a world of lost love and longing, as seen through the eyes of two women forced to rebuild their lives after losing the man they loved.
