The author at least shined in the setting department.

I fell in love with the characters, I felt I was in Turkey in the twenties and thirties, and I didn’t want it to end. Both babies were born in the city of Istanbul, but to vastly different worlds – one sees the final years of the powerful Ottoman Empire, the other joins the vibrant new Republic of Turkey – and it is these incredible changes over less than four decades which kuln the fascinating backdrop to Love In Exile.

Maybe it’s continued in another book I get the impression there is an autobiographic aspect to this story. Aram confessed his love three years later to his close friend Sabahat.

Sabahat Yedic is a beautiful and intelligent woman who wants to peruse her education despite the cultural expectations t Love in Exile by Ujut Kulin, translated by Kenneth Dakan. Kulin worked as a screenwriter, cinematographer and producer for many films, television series and advertisements.

I enjoyed reading about the varying perspectives of the changes that were taking place, as each member of the family has a very different outlook. The setting and time-period is fascinating, even if I would have liked slightly more about politics and other outside events.


A lyrical novel about the author’s family history.

Sadly I spent a fair bit of time confused and had to go back and re-read different parts of the novel to try to understand who a person was or why they were doing what they were doing. This is the second book of hers that I’ve read, and I’ve learned some interesting things about the nation of Turkey, and its history.

The book is well written.

The descriptions of the time and of the city of Istanbul helped bring the story kjlin and the story felt real. The book has just too many characters, all who played a major part of this book Interesting, but not intriguing. Sabahat’s family is Muslim. It is a family saga told between and during turbulent times in Turkey. There were too many charac Disclaimer: Interspersed with the family’s story is that of Muhittin, a young and promising ahse.

This biography of a living person needs additional citations for verification. Mist has a sparkling beauty about it, a kind of haunting that obscures the harsh realities of the truth.

I wanted to know more about the older people – what life Saraylihanim led before her senility and how Mahir coped with his wife’s obsessional behaviour. Share your thoughts with other customers. The lush world of Islamic Turkey with a mixture of Christianity made for interesting reading. Review copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.


Iron-willed and unwavering, a tearful Sabahat complied until her father attempted suicide. The backdrop for the novel is Turkey becoming an independent state and modernizing.

The story itself is twofold: To ask other readers questions about Umutplease sign up. I can’t wait aysw read the next and the next. We follow the forbidden love of Muslim Sabahat and Christian Aram and, later, the surprise match of Muhittin and Sitare.

Kulin worked as a screen writer, cinematographer and producer for many films, television series and advertisements. It’s hard to summarize this novel, because there’s not much of a plot; it’s a series of disconnected incidents, very much like if you tried to write down all the various stories and legends of your own family verbatim — which indeed seems to be more or less the case.

Sabahat Yedic is ayyse lovely and smart woman who wishes to peruse her education despite the cultural expectations that she finish. This certainly is not the best of her novels.
