“Ayse Kulin is a clever creator. She draws the reader into the story of the life and loves of a Turkish family in wartime, and by the time the reader realizes that she has also cranked up the tension with a rescue plot, it is too late to put the book down unfinished. For aficionados of wartime novels, as well as for anyone glued to his or her seat watching the film Argo, it is a should read.” — Helen Bryan, bestselling creator of War Brides and The SisterhoodBorn into privilege to some of the last Ottoman pasas, beautiful, spirited Selva is the brightest jewel in her father’s household — until she falls in love with Rafael Alfandari. Though Turkey has long been a protected haven for Jews, marriage between a high-ranking Muslim girl and a Jewish boy is strictly forbidden. Yet young love might not be denied, and Selva and Rafael defy their parents and marry, fleeing to Paris in hopes of a better life — only to find themselves trapped in the path of the invading Nazis.But in the middle of darkness shines a beacon of hope: A handful of courageous Turkish diplomats, safe only by the tenuous neutrality of their homeland, hatch a daring plot to spirit the exiled lovers and hundreds of innocent Jews to safety. Together, they are going to traverse a war-torn continent, crossing enemy lines and risking everything in one last, desperate bid for freedom.
