Author’s Notes:

Berlin can be an incredibly beautiful and romantic city. When I first began imagining this novel, two scenes painted themselves in my mind. The first was the Green Week encounter that brought Ian and Dima together. The second was this one, kissing in the moonlight with the Berlin skyline visible in the distance. “Moon over Berlin, Sun over Santorini” takes its title from this scene. Well, the first part of the title does. “Sun over Santorini” comes from a scene I think you will agree has its own charms. But for that, a little patience.
