It’s hard to summarize this novel, because there’s not much of a plot; it’s a series of disconnected A very slightly fictionalized account of a family living in Istanbul in the s and 30s — that is, immediately after the fall of the Ottoman Empire and during the early establishing years of the Turkish Republic.

Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers. The book is well written. There is a fairly large cast of characters, I found the family trees in the book very useful, and used them for reference more than once. To me, this book was full of misguided hope and broken expectations. This was a look at two different families in Turkey during the early part of the 20th century.

I loved the other characters as much but Uumut wanted more Sabahat and Aram. I wasn’t always engrossed in Love In Exile which is why it is only rated at three stars although I am still wavering between three and four. Sabahat Yedic is a beautiful and intelligent woman who wants to peruse her education despite the cultural expectations that she finish.

However Sabahat never counted on falling in love with Arram, an Armenian boy. I would recommend reading a brief history of the time period before you read, which is something I ended up doing as I was reading in order to give myself a better understanding of the novel itself. At some point it seemed the novel was centered on Shabahat, hence I was expecting the end to tell more about her.

This book took me a long time to finish. We follow the forbidden love of Muslim Sabahat and Christian Aram and, later, the surprise match of Muhittin and Ahse.

This certainly is not the best of her novels. View all 4 comments.
