Never Forever

Description of new work

Adalet’s cursed marriage ended 30 years ago, and today American son Nuri and wife Lee fly to Istanbul to bury her. Writer Lee must keep a promise. “I’m not important but my survivor’s story is,” Adalet pled; and now, as Lee examines a life cast against revolution from Ottoman Empire to Turkish Republic, Adalet’s spirit reaches into past and present, revealing a progressive woman caught in a war-torn love saga that moves all across Thrace and Anatolia. Throughout the 34 years of her fateful tie to handsome Burhan the blacksmith’s son, Adalet gives up her legacy four times and confronts deception, desertion, vice, jealousy, rejection and grief as she courageously works her way towards becoming the strong friend with inner peace as Lee remembers her.
