A romantic adventure set in the cultural & political terrain of Turkey.
A backpacker falls face-flat in love while on holiday in Turkey. Leigh doesn’t learn that Ahmet is a Kurdish freedom fighter until after their 3-day Islamic wedding. In funny and warm-hearted scenes, Leigh learns to deal with neighbours pounding at the door, chickens in the basement, a new friend who needs help to escape and the growing threat of torture and separation from the man she loves.
"The Word Not Spoken" Reviews
Wow, what an amazing story! I didn't want it to end but sadly it did. I loved the characters, Leigh and Ahmet and the locations in Turkey felt rather familiar as I'd visited Goreme and Istanbul last year. Unfortunately I wouldn't have had the courage of Leigh to stay there. The sense of heat and odours, food and drink and differences in cultures came alive through the writing. The last few chapters were quite a roller coaster ride but I think the way it was done helped make the ending more acceptable to me. My favourite line spoken often by Ahmet is, "If it is true, I must say it." If you've read the book, you'll understand the humour in that line.
I cried when the book was done, I didn't want it to be over. The writing was so beautiful, I could see, and hear, and taste, and smell the surroundings. And it's amazing that it's almost all true. The ending was heart-wrenching and beautiful. I hope the author writes other books as well.
I couldn't put this book down! A wonderful story that pulled at my heartstrings. I laughed and cried and really enjoyed the story. Beautifully written!
