    Historical fiction

    Set in the early twentieth century Turkey, and is so beautifully written you feel a part of the time and culture… I found this to be a well plotted tale with enough mystery and twists to keep you engrossed and guessing right to the end.. Lydia and Alice are sisters, but so different in outlook. Lydia is driven by what she feels is inequality and is full of life, but still not quite ready for what life throws at her. While Alice, is a homebody, and looks out for her family first and foremost….but who is the brave one in the end? This is not a fast paced read, but one to settle down to .

    A Tale of Two Sisters

    Set in Turkey, this story moves between the lives of Two sisters who are in Constantinople. The first sister went to work and disappeared, her older sister goes tghere to look for her. Although the change between one sister's story and the other's can be confusing, it is a really interesting plot set in a fascinating city. Recommended. A good read.

    A very interesting suspenseful book

    This book was hard to put down. It was suspenseful right to the end. T the historical description of the Orient Express was interesting as was the information with regard to workings of the Sultan's harem.

    Historical Fiction Turkey

    The book is a based around the story of two English sisters Alice and Lydia Verinder's in the early 1900's. The book is classed as historical fiction saga, but it's also a mystery and the front cover of the book is beautiful. Lydia travels to Constantinople to work as a governess for the Sultans two daughters , but her sister Alice becomes concerned when she suddenly stops writing. Alice's is given some money by her Aunt to go on a holiday to Venice and have a much needed break from her parents. Alice decides to travel to Constantinople to try to find out what happened to her sister and along the way she meets the handsome Harry Frome. The story is very interesting, it has many twists and turns, and it keeps you guessing until the end to find out what happened to Lydia? I enjoyed A Tale Of Two Sisters, it's a great story, full of interesting facts about life in Turkey at that time, the culture, the food, the Sultans harem, travel on the orient express, and living in the palace. Three stars from me.
