I still dont know why this book was titled Bliss after reading it . Meryam'sd life is anything but bliss before and after her rape by her Uncle. she is taught to loathe herself as a female , leaving me wondering whether anyone in this particular cultue can escape this self loathing. What a different Turkey than the one portrayed by Parmuk in Mueum of Innocence. I could not live in this one.
