Description

Upon receiving a letter and a package of journals from a dying Mehtap, her mother Nuray's close friend in Turkey, a young Toronto woman immerses herself in the old woman's memories. She uncovers Mehtap's story as a factory worker in the 1960s who is infatuated with her boss, a man she willingly lies for, and even wrap presents for that he gives to his mistress and his wife. When her friend, Nuray, moves in with her, something unexpected happens and Mehtap is forced to choose between her two loves. Mehtap's story is interwoven with that of her parents, Cretan refugees who landed in Izmir in the mid-twenties as a result of the disastrous population exchange, only to discover an inescapable and tragic truth that shatters their lives. As Mehtap's writings unfurl, Nuray's daughter -- Mehtap's namesake -- now the keeper of the journals, notebooks and letters written by her mother's friend, also uncovers her own mother's deeply-held secrets, furtive yearnings, and forbidden love.
