Unspoken words, transforming lives...
Neslihan Önderoğlu, one of the prolific and award winning authors of our contemporary literature, touches entangled lives and unseen wounds in her new novel. She illustrates today’s Turkey in the lives of seemingly different yet similar lives of her young protagonists. The novel that arouses curiosity starting with its first sentence has the punch to leave its mark on readers of all ages with its theme, construction and language.

But it didn’t happen. No matter how hard she tried she could not find anything she was searching for.
Everything was over and done within the silence that disrupted her sleep. Only the moon was a witness, and Saliha… She was just one of those. Those who waited patiently, who scrammed, who stayed behind and who took to the roads.
