it was amazing

A sensitively written and historically accurate account of lives caught up in the disastrous entry of Turkey into World War One. Hard as it is to imagine today, Greek and Turkish people lived alongside in Anatolia, as they had for centuries. The author conjures up a small village involved in the highly skilled carpet weaving trade, and depicts both Greek and Turkish characters with great affection and skill. The small details of their lives are handled very well and one comes to care for everyone trapped in the disaster of war and mistrust. Highly readable and definitely recommended.
