The story depicts the struggle of a young lady in a stifling relationship that continuously exemplifies how cultural differences can complicate a relationship. However, I would say this story can be that of any woman. Not only a Latina but anyone can experience male dominance and control in a relationship. Negi, the protagonist ventures out on her own, leaves the comfort zone of her Mom's home to experience life with Ulvi, her Turkish boyfriend/lover not knowing that her life would be limited and stifled by a controlling male who uses her to succeed in his academic career. After enduring much mental and to certain extent physical abuse, with determination, willpower and a strong desire to achieve her goals Negi leaves Ulvi and attains a Master's Degree.
El Amante Turco is an exemplary story written from the soul of an author who endured the ups and downs that life has to offer.
Exceptionally written, well- detailed, a woman's triumph. Highly recommended.
The only problem is that if you carry the book inside a bag the plastic around the cover will peel a little bit ):
BUT I'M SO HAPPY WITH IT.
