This book may make my Top Ten Books for 2018. It offer compassion for all human beings, and particularly for women who live in places where women are disempowered because they are women. Please note that in that sentence I consciously use the word women three times.
This story takes place in modern day Turkey, with flashbacks to 2001 in Turkey and Oxford, England. Although it is particular to those times and places, it speaks to individual suffering that any woman might experience.
