Review by: Bev Robitai on Feb. 10, 2011 :
Wow, Evan Andrew really knows his historical background. The story is a little slow to start, but once we get into following the heroine's dramatic adventures it's absolutely rivetting. She shows astonishing presence of mind to cope with the rough treatment she gets when her ship is seized, and to strike up the right relationships with her captors to ensure her survival. Placed in an unthinkeable situation, she triumphs and we get a vivid glimpse into life in 17th century Turkey as a warm and genuine love story unfolds.
