Correct in all respects. People leave cards from their dogs in memory of doggy friends who have died

Which author, who has connections with Greece, wrote a book, published in 1983, about the life of his mother and his hunting down of her killer? What was the name of the book?

That was quick Wendy!! Well done, you're quite right.
'Eleni' is one of my favourite books....rather harrowing in places but very moving and well worth reading.
Over to you again!!

I think it was Geoffrey de Villehardouin, but we`ll let the absent star have that one seeing as she kept it in the family !

Will someone else post the next item ?
