"100th year of the Çanakkale war"
From the pen of a woman, A fairytalelike novel set durıng the Çanakkale war…
Unfulfilled Promises features a great love story set against the backdrop of The Great War (1914-1918).
Gül Nihal Şemsettin journeys from Turkey to London and back again to her family home in Çanakkale. Having studied medicine in London stands her in good stead when the whole of the Çanakkale Peninsula becomes embroiled in the struggle by the Allied Forces to take the land by force. Her suitors are from military backgrounds posted to her homeland from England and Australia as part of the enemy, sent to attack Turkey.
For a young Turkish woman to have an affair with an enemy soldier was enough to disgrace any respectable Turkish family; but that was only part of Gül’s.
