Over the last few months I have even changed my name. For my beloved people here in Istanbul, the City, I will always be Lena Vrana. For the Turks, however, I am the rich English-Turk woman. My new false identity will, from now on, open up new dreams, a new life…
September 1955, Constantinople. Young Lena Vrana and her mother managed to survive the Turkish pogrom against the City’s Greeks. But her father was murdered and his shop destroyed. Lena was saved thanks to her great love, Kostas Barkoglou, who promised to marry her. However, when Lena finds out that her betrothed has married another woman, she will feel her life has fallen apart for a second time. Seeking revenge, as she sees it, she will marry a Turk. And that will be the beginning of her descent into her own personal hell.
An amazing novel, an ode to eros and innocent love, against the backdrop of the Greek community in Istanbul in 1955.
