Amalia Melis’ husband died suddenly in the middle of the night. What happened next sounds like something from a true crime podcast but it was her life.
First, the police believed she murdered him. And then, three years later, she was forced to exhume his body as part of a custom in Greece that all families must experience due to over-crowded cemeteries.
Amalia’s story of her life after her husband’s death is moving and unexpectedly beautiful.
THE END BITS:
Amalia is looking for an agent for her first novel "WHERE ARE ALL THE WHITE HOUSES?, three generations of immigrant women from one family seek "home" and identity. Check out Amalia's work here.
