“In The Shadow of Acropolis” Captures the Endurance of the Human Spirit

For many, hope is a clichéd concept, but for those that face truly dire circumstances it can become a powerful tool. For one woman, hope was all she had as she faced wrongful imprisonment in a foreign country. Author Simonne Celestine uses her friend’s true story of determination and faith in her book, “In the Shadows of Acropolis.”

“In The Shadow of Acropolis” follows the story of Julia Roberts and her journey to seek freedom from an unwarranted jail sentence. Upon landing in a port in Greece, Julia is apprehended by Athens’ police and sentenced to the infamous Korydallos prison. Despite a waning health and seemingly insurmountable odds, Julia remains hopeful that she will see freedom one day.

“When my friend told me about her experience, I was shocked and moved by what she endured,” Celestine said. “In the Shadow of Acropolis is not only a tribute to her, but to all the amazing women who brave unbelievable misfortune and use those experiences to mold them into stronger spirits.”
