25th August 1957 is the night of a great celebration held in Plaka to mark the closure of the leper colony which sits across the bay: Spinalonga. A cure has been found, and the residents of the island are finally free to return to their families and lives.

But a tragic and violent event turns the night upside down; as some are given their liberty, others are condemned to lose theirs. Those who remain must face unthinkable loss, and rebuild the lives they thought they knew.

One August Night will reunite readers with Anna, Maria, Manoli and Andreas in the weeks leading up to the evacuation of Spinalonga, and through its aftermath.
