Last Train to Istanbul by Ayşe KulinInternational bestseller by one of Turkey’s most beloved authors
As the daughter of one of Turkey’s last Ottoman pashas, Selva could win the heart of any man in Ankara. Yet the spirited young beauty only has eyes for Rafael Alfandari, the handsome Jewish son of an esteemed court physician. In defiance of their families, they marry, fleeing to Paris to build a new life.
But when the Nazis invade France, the exiled lovers will learn that nothing—not war, not politics, not even religion—can break the bonds of family. For after they learn that Selva is but one of their fellow citizens trapped in France, a handful of brave Turkish diplomats hatch a plan to spirit the Alfandaris and hundreds of innocents, many of whom are Jewish, to safety. Together, they must traverse a war-torn continent, crossing enemy lines and risking everything in a desperate bid for freedom. From Ankara to Paris, Cairo, and Berlin, Last Train to Istanbul is an uplifting tale of love and adventure from Turkey’s beloved bestselling novelist Ayşe Kulin.

Ten years ago today, one of the greatest matches in the history of football was played as Liverpool came back from down at half-time in the Champions League final against AC Milan to win on penalties. Dave Usher: I watched it in Liverpool city centre with some friends. I've never once regretted not being in the Ataturk Stadium because the atmosphere in town was incredible. It had been buzzing after the wins over Juventus quarterfinals and Chelsea semifinals , too, with thousands of fans heading straight from Anfield to celebrate in town, but the night of the final itself was something else. After the game, people poured out of whatever bars they'd been in and the streets were full of tens of thousands of delirious, almost disbelieving but wildly celebrating fans. It was incredible.
