In Katie Estill's beautifully written and riveting first novel, the young American protagonist, Sylvia, grieving over the death of her mother, flees to Greece to begin a new life. In Athens, in a vividly described cityscape, she meets a seductive Greek couple, the painter Ari and his beautiful, though schizophrenic young wife, Althea. Sylvia and Ari eventually become lovers. For Sylvia, the affair brings one revelation after another and draws her into a relationship with her lover's wife, whom she alternatively resents, loves, and attempts to protect. In a powerful and haunting climax, the three become irrevocably bound together in death and in life. Evening Would Find Me is both a love story and a portrait of the artist as a young woman.
