Bridge Books (10+) • Novels
Children grow as they feel they are a part of the nature.
21st book of the award winning Bridge Books collection is written by one of the most remarkable names of Turkish Contemporary Literature, Ahmet Büke. Büke reminds the reader about the healing power of nature with his magical yet realistic plot, telling the journey of a youngster going through the deep forests and ending in her own hearth. Criticizing the concept of hunting delicately, the story glorifies archaic knowledge while making the readers from all ages to feel that a different life in touch with nature is still possible.
Confused by the issues between her mom and dad, Gökçe takes the road to spend her summer holidays at Aunt Maya’s place. Although she’s not so much pleased about being obliged to live in a forest village without internet and even a phone connection, she’s still attracted by the legendary personality of aunt Maya.

She would eventually understand why Aunt Maya is called as “Stork Woman” when they took a walk together in the deep forest.
