The bestselling author of Last Train to Istanbul returns with a tale of love defying all boundaries.

Sabahat, a beautiful young Muslim woman, is known in her family for her intelligence, drive, and stubbornness. She believes there is more in store for her life than a good marriage and convinces her parents to let her pursue her education, rare for young Turkish women in the 1920s. But no one-least of all Sabahat herself-expects that in the course of her studies she will fall for a handsome Armenian student named Aram.

After precious moments alone together, their love begins to blossom. Try as she might to simplify her life and move on, Sabahat has no choice but to follow her heart's desire. But Aram is Christian, and neither family approves.

With only hope to guide their way, they defy age-old traditions, cross into dangerous territory, and risk everything to find their way back to each other. One of Turkey's most beloved authors brings us an evocative story of two star-crossed lovers inspired by her own family's history.

    I enjoyed the book and the narration but there are way too many characters for this to work as audio book. I believe reading this in print with a geneaology chart would have been more enjoyable.

  • Book Critic

    A really compelling story in that it offers many unique perspectives and outlooks that are fun to examine. However, the story (even with a genealogy chart) was a bit confusing with all the different characters, and it helps to read some of the history around the time period that the story takes place in.
