You find that the grave of Michael Lester is as moving and as important as the tomb of Agamemnon at Mycaenae, or Byron or Venizelos or Alexander. He, and the men like him, are a part of the same picture. I stopped, and then said helplessly: ‘Greece. Damn it, what is it that it does to one?’
You find that the grave of Michael Lester is as moving and as important as the tomb of Agamemnon at Mycaenae, or Byron or Venizelos or Alexander. Damn it, what is it that it does to one?’ He was silent a moment, then he said: ‘I think the secret is that it belongs to all of us – to us of the West. We’ve learned to think in its terms, and to live in its laws. It’s given us almost everything that our world has that is worth while. Truth, straight thinking, freedom, beauty

He said formally: ‘Brother of Michael, you are welcome. The woman of the house said you would come tonight. Simon withdrew the hand which the old man hadn’t appeared to notice, and said, with equal formality: ‘My name is Simon. My father and I wrote to you to thank you for what you did for my brother, but – well, letters can’t say it all. My father is dead now, but I’m speaking for him, too, when I say thank you again. You’ll understand it isn’t always possible to put into words all that one feels – all one would like to say – but I think you will understand what I feel, and what my father felt.
My Brother Michael is a novel by Mary Stewart, first published in 1959. Camilla Haven has recently broken her engagement to Philip and is holidaying on her own in Greece. She is sitting in a cafe in Athens writing to Elizabeth, who would have been with Camilla but for a broken leg, when a man appears with a message about a hired car for Delphi. Camilla hasn't requested it, but no one else claims the car. She wants to visit Delphi, but was doubtful about being able to afford it.
I found My Brother Michael to be good a read now as when I first read it decades ag.
One main reason I enjoyed this book so much was because of the way Stewart depicted the growing attraction between Camila and Simon, there was no overt sexual descriptions to distract the reader from the main plot. There was attraction between the main characters but it was left up to the reader’s imagination to draw conclusion of the potential love between the two.
My Brother Michael book. This book is heavier on the murder and mayhem than a typical Mary Stewart romantic suspense novel, and the romance part here is very subtle, more hinted at than actually experienced. The plot was a bit confusing to me the first time or two I read it. Others may disagree, but I don't consider this one of Mary Stewart's best novels. Still, even an average Mary Stewart book is worth reading. She creates a wonderful sense of atmosphere through her detailed descriptions of exotic places, in a time now past.
