This book is not a classic historical novel. The author, drawing narrative material from the three best-known chronicles that recount in a dramatic way the fall of Constantinople by the Turks, attempts to reconstruct the last days of the city's life in fragments. The heroes are well known: Paleologos and his soldiers, Patriarch Anastasios, Mohammed the Conqueror and his men. The ending also known: But through the taste - bitter or sweet - of our History, a new hope is always born.
