Item description for Beyond the Orchard by Azize Ethem...

Readers of Cornucopia are familiar with the writing of Azize Ethem from her Village Voices, her delightful diary of daily life in Iznik, where she and her husband Selim have built a home on the shores of Lake Ascania. Her earlier articles described life in their previous home in the village of Dereky on the southern coast of Turkey, where they settled after first moving to Turkey from Saudi Arabia. Her new book, Beyond the Orchard, describes the trials and tribulations of building their house and starting a new life in a tiny Turkish village, she, an expatriate Englishwoman, and he, an Ottoman prince from the imperial Osmanl dynasty who had been exiled when the Turkish Republic was founded in 1923. ...Beyond the Orchard, a beautifully written, witty and evocative book that should be read by all foreigners living in Turkey as well as by the Turks with whom they dwell, for this is a classic that tells of how people get on with one another at the village level in Anatolia, where communal living began ten thousand years ago. -John Freely, author of Istanbul: The Imperial City

Reviews - What do customers think about Beyond the Orchard?

In the tradition of "house-building in remote villages" lit  Feb 11, 2007
It started with Peter Mayle in Provence, continued through Frances Mayes in Tuscany, and here we have Azize Etham in Turkey: settlign in to a tiny village and building / renovating a family home, and entertaining family members who are based abroad.

However, I feel this book has a little more to it. Ethem is married to a Turk from a (formerly) upper class Ottoman family, so it is as much about his reconsiliation with his rather reduced circumstances.

Ethem treats the locals as her allies and is always respectful of them. There is never any gruesome funny anecdotes about their "quirky" characteristics.

Recommended for people who like readng about Turkish life, as I do.
