  • An armchair traveler's delight Jan 22, 2009
    by jennie

    The very best book for anyone contemplating a trip to Turkey, or someone who has been there and wants to relive fond memories.
    It is clear the author loves Turkey. She knows its history, and has that special knack for interweaving the now and the then. Her descriptions are beautiful and loving, even when she describes poverty or political problems, because she understands history. Her curiosity and delight fascinated me. i felt as if I was right there beside her, and when I had to put the book down, it was with that dreamlike reluctance to return to real life.
    Definitely a keeper. I will pick this up over and over again to steep myself in that ancient culture.
