Als Peri auf dem Weg zu einer Dinnerparty in Istanbul auf offener Straße überfallen wird, fällt ein Foto aus ihrer Handtasche ein Relikt aus ihrer Studienzeit in Oxford. Daraufhin wird sie von der Erinnerung an einen Skandal eingeholt, der ihre Welt für immer aus den Fugen gehoben hat. Elif Shafak verwebt meisterhaft Fragen der Liebe, der Schuld und des Glaubens und erzählt, wie der Kampf zwischen Tradition und Moderne die junge Frau zu zerreißen droht.
