Here’s what they’re saying about new novel Nicolai’s Daughters by local author.
Stella Leventoyannis Harvey read from her book Nicolai’s Daughters at Thin Air, Winnipeg’s International Writers Festival. The story takes place in both Canada and Greece and deals with family relationships from the perspective of Nicolai and his daughter Alexia. Even though I’m not Greek, the passages that Harvey reads are relatable on multiple levels. The themes are both universal and yet very Canadian at the same time. Family secrets, multigenerational conflict, and the struggle to understand a culture you’ve never had the opportunity to be part of, make this book a must read for so many people.
