The Turk and My Mother Summary


The Turk and My Mother: A Novel by Mary Helen Stefaniak (Creighton University)

Every family has its secrets. But toward the end of his life, George decides to tell his daughter the story of his mother and the Turk. This initial revelation leads to a narrative tour de force that follows a family through four generations and around the world-through love, marriage, and betrayal, through illness, death, and war. Mary Helen Stefaniak's charming and flawed characters and the warmth of her prose will stay with readers long after they close the book. Reading group guide included.
