KIRKUS REVIEW

A unique setting -- Turkey at the dividing line between the old and the new- for a story of the friendship between a high-born, gently reared Turkish girl, and Fanny, niece of an English scholar and philosopher, who seemed to her new found friend very daring and advanced. But Feride becomes the vanguard of Turkish womanhood, dares to face adventures as wife of Mustapha Kemal's ADC, and plays her part in bringing her country through to independence. Vivid scenes and live characters for an absorbing story. The story ends on a note of sacrifice for the new Turkey.
