really liked it

I must have a built in radar for English Bookstores when I travel. I don't know how many times I've found myself in a foreign city and just happen to stumble across the English Bookstore to find a new literay treasure on their shelves. How incredibly approriate to find this one in Istanbul.

The author does a bang up job of combining history with a real story. It's not easy to weave in the setting of a past and make it part of the telling. Very often you get history lessons inserted in between the action. Not here.

I became rather fond of the characters and got more than a glimpse of Istanbul as it was. A real gem of a read.
