All it takes is a single act of defiance ... pivoting on Reyna, a single mother in Harlem and her eccentric aunt Kiki, this is a story spanning a generation that links seemingly unconnected people in the US, Turkey and Germany.
Woven through this intricate tapestry of lives is a compassionate portrayal of human fallibility and the possibility of redemption for its many and varied narrators.
Not considered very enjoyable, but certainly engendered considerable discussion. A bit disjointed, we thought.
Everybody enjoyed this book - an amazing story. Very improbable until you 'google' it.
We found it too disjointed to read comfortably, but we had a lively discussion due to the behaviour of the characters.
We all enjoyed the way the stories interconnected. An easy start to the year.
