Escaping Cyprus by Gus Constantine

Escaping Cyprus by Gus Constantine

Title: Escaping Cyprus

Author: Gus Constantine

Genre: Fiction/Historical

Format: Paperwork

Publisher: CreateSpace

Publication Date: April 16, 2015


This novel is based on true accounts. I have conducted many interviews here in the United States and have traveled to Cyprus for additional research. The atrocities described in the novel are factual.

When Turkish soldiers invade his Cypriot village in 1974, twelve-year old Haji witnesses brutal atrocities, including the torturous murders of his father and sister while his pregnant mother was repeatedly being raped.

With the help of his beautiful school teacher Rebecca, (dishonored many times by Turkish soldiers) they flee their village only to face constant life-threatening danger wherever they went; as the barbaric Turkish soldiers continue to pursue them.

Their struggle to survive the Turkish soldiers and then to erase their horrible memories that haunt them lead to the dramatic ending.
