    Tasoula Hadjitofi experienced the Turkish invasion and occupation of Cyprus, her homeland, when she was a child. More than five hundred churches and monasteries were destroyed and looted of icons, mosaics, and other artifacts. Tasoula's family were forced to relocate out of their beloved Cyprus. After she married, Tasoula moved to the Netherlands. So determined was she to recover as many of the icons as was possible, the Orthodox church, via the Dutch government, assigned her "honorary Consul to the Orthodox Church of Cyprus". With this title, she quickly set out to find the lost treasures. I won an advance copy of this book from Goodreads' Giveaway drawings. Apropos of the book's content, it will be released for sale during holy week 2017.
