While on the island of Kythnos, Thair becomes fascinated with a person. This mystery woman puts her in situations that challenge her traditional values and her concept of the ideal partner. Thair has several relationships in the novel, each one helping her understand her quest for completion.
The Greek Persuasion spans Thair’s life from thirty-one to thirty-six. This novel-within-a -novel explores human sexuality, the complexity of mother-daughter relationships, and the choices women of different generations make when choosing—or settling—for “Mr. (or Ms.) Good Enough.” Will Thair ever find that missing part of her that Zeus chopped off with his magic sword at the beginning of time? Or is the concept of The One just one big fairy tale that has left generations of women, including Thair, searching for someone who doesn’t exist?
