Description

Enthralled admirers of Esmeralda Santiago's memoirs of her childhood have yearned to read more.

Now in The Turkish Lover, Esmeralda finally breaks out of the monumental struggle with her powerful mother, only to elope into the spell of an exotic love affair. At the heart of the story is Esmeralda's relationship with "the Turk", a passion that gradually becomes a prison out of which she must emerge to become herself. The expansive humanity, earthy humour and psychological courage that made Esmeralda's first two books so successful are on full display again in The Turkish Lover.
