In a small town outside Istanbul, Sinan Basioglu, a devout Kurdish Muslim, wishes to move his family to the safety of his old village in order to take his fifteen-year-old daughter away from the relationship she is having with their neighbour, the seventeen-year-old American son of expatriate teachers. But when a massive earthquake hits the village, the Basioglu family is faced with greater challenges as their survival becomes dependent on their American neighbours.

I cannot rate this as I had wildly mixed feelings. The motives of those who 'do good' are of 'service', too frequently turn out to proselytize for their belief system. People seem to think their Truth is the only one. Deception, destruction, death.

what a sad story. very well written. we are given a look at a Muslims family's turmoil after an earthquake. Americans are there to help but memories of his fathers death reminds him Americans made the gun that killed him. A Romeo and Juliet romance with the daughter and American boy. Heartwrenching events affect the daughter and her decisions which ultimately become tragic. a MUST read.
