Could a song ever link the lives of three persons? This is something two close friends, Christina and Philippos, a girl and a boy of 14, will try to find out while preparing a school performance for the World War II Remembrance Day. They decide to meet some people who have lived through those hard years; to tape-record their memories of the Athens occupation by the Nazis, and the activities of the various Greek resistance groups. Their research will reveal the details of a tragic story and a secret still affecting the lives of its protagonists.

Reviews:
"... The author uses her powerful and clear way of writing, her ability to penetrate the soul, her historical knowledge, and more generally her genius as a writer, to sculpture the heroic profile of our tormented and proud people..."
Ioannis Theoharis, PROINOS LOGOS (newspaper) - Ioannina, 18 March 1992

"... Yet another novel by the well known author, who - with her perfect technique, wonderful language and flowing narration - manages to link the past with the present, whilst reviving a certain era and putting forward contemporary values. A Song for Three is also a book the heroes of which link it to other novels by Loty Petrovits, such as A House for Five, Wrong, Mr. Neuger! The Little Brother, etc. From one book to another, Loty Petrovits builds her own world, completes the picture of her own characters - creations of her literary imagination."
Manos Kondoleon, DIADROMES quarterly - Athens, Spring 1992

"... Through her new novel for adolescents, Loty Petrovits suggests a deeply human attitude towards the events that marked the recent past and still determine -to an extent- the present and the future."
DIAVAZO literary magazine, No 290 Athens, 24 June 1992
