1922 war-ravaged Europe.

Two young women exiled from their country, refugees amongst their own countrymen.

Can these two women find love and their way home amongst treachery and betrayal?

Turkey in 1922 is a dangerous place for young Greek women. A treaty between two nations puts Petra and Marina in a disguise and on a boat bound for Athens, GreeceŚrefugees from a hostile nation and unwanted among their own people.

Following her father's wishes, Marina is headed to a convent to become a nun until her father disappears after the treaty is signed. Decision and circumstance strand her on an island as the houseguest of a mysterious stranger. Exploring her surroundings she discovers an orphanage that holds as many secrets as the stranger she's falling in love with.

Petra has a wanderer's spirit that refuses to be tamed, even by the young soldier who's proposed to her. Never satisfied with simple aspirations, like marrying and bearing children, she finds herself an outcast, working in an opium den amongst government dissidents and ne'er-do-wells. She didn't count on attracting the attention of human-traffickers, and her blond hair and fair skin mark her for abduction.

Can Petra and Marina find love and their way home amongst treachery and betrayal?

Based on one family's history, Seasons of Exile is a love story and a historical about betrayal, heartbreak, and redemption.

Seasons of Exile is an emotionally charged ride across two countries and the Aegean Sea.
