"When Will The Night Be Starry" - A Timeless Tale of Resilience and Hope

“When Will The Night Be Starry,” by Katrina Howell brings us a thrilling, yet touching story that begins in Crete during World War II. It takes readers on a journey through the harsh yet beautiful scenery of the island of Crete while telling the story of the lives of characters and the challenges they face in a time of war and occupation. The novel transports us into the lives of people surviving during times when catastrophe and hardship are never far away. The friendships forged between two families hold them together, bonding them in a way that ultimately saves them. The importance of the human need for connection in strengthening their resistance and helping them to overcome the difficulties they face, is etched into the story of their lives as history continually changes their circumstances over decades of turmoil.

The story begins with Alex Atkinson, a British archaeologist working on the Minoan site of Knossos as war is about to break out. His passion brings the island’s rich history and strong spirit to life. The tale gracefully moves through the Cretan people’s struggles and hopes as they deal with war, occupation, and their relentless fight for independence.

Howell creates a well researched storyline that mixes historical events with the fictional lives of characters that readers will find themselves connecting to and rooting for. From the sun-parched archaeological sites to the snow-capped White Mountains, the reader is taken on a  journey that is as visually enchanting as it is emotionally gripping.

With ‘When Will The Night Be Starry,‘ I aimed to honour the spirit of Crete and its people. Those people whose stories of courage and camaraderie have been etched in my heart since my very first visit,” says Katrina Howell. “I hope that this story resonates with readers and reminds them of the light that shines even in the darkest of times.”

“When Will The Night Be Starry” is available for purchase on Amazon. You can get it in kindle, hardcover and paperback formats. It promises to be a compelling read that invites you to explore the depths of human connection and the strength that lies in unity and shared history.
