Many thanks to everyone who entered our contest, better luck next time folks!

"I never knew how painful and difficult the history of modem Greece had been until I read 'The Thread' by Victoria Hislop, my favourite of her three novels so far. With a large cast of memorable characters, it tells the story of Thessaloniki from the great fire of 1917 to the present day..." Anthony Horowitz, Telegraph Books of the Year.
