Yvonne, a widow, returns to the small Turkish village where she and her husband spent their honeymoon. Her daughter is an alcoholic; her son has just been proposed to by a wealthy woman. Yvonne is determined to find her way alone. But what happens in this village connects her to Turkey in ways she didn’t expect, including her conviction that she is responsible for a boy’s death. It is worth reading if only to question your own ability to be as independent and determined as Yvonne

I enjoyed this novel about a fifysomething woman reflecting about relationships in her life while in Turkey. Very well written. I want to read more of Vida's work.
