The house has been transformed into an army hospital, it is a prize of war in the hands of the British. And as Nur weaves through the streets carrying the embroideries that have become her livelihood, Constantinople swarms with Allied soldiers - a reminder of how far she and her city have fallen.
The most precious thing in Nur’s new life is the orphan in her care - a boy with a terrible secret. When he falls dangerously ill, Nur’s world becomes entwined with the enemy's. She must return to where she grew up and plead for help from Medical Officer George Monroe.
As the lines between enemy and friend become fainter, a new danger emerges - something even more threatening than the lingering shadow of war.

Gorgeous descriptions take you right to the heat of the story and you immediately become so involved in the characters lives. The characters are incredibly realistic, afflicted by the tragedies of war they are devastatingly human and you can't not empathise with their plights.
Loved the story. Very interesting to read from a historical angle also. Beautifully written.
