The story is set in 1921 and is told from different people’s perspectives , but it centers around one woman called Nur . Nur’s homehouse has now been turned into a hospital for wounded soldiers belonging to the enemy much to her horror .
Nur is a teacher and she has taken under her wing a curious young boy that needs looking after . When he gets seriously ill she has to turn to the last person she ever imagined she would ask for help ... The Enemy . The story is bittersweet , the heartbreak and confusion of emotions during wartime is really well described and the turmoil that war brings to families is enough to bring a tear to your eye . I really enjoyed this story and I would recommend this to anyone with an interest in wartime stories .
