What happens that afternoon will change her life." "Twenty years later, Asya Kazanci lives with her extended family in Istanbul. Due to a mysterious family curse, all the Kazanci men die in their early forties, so it is a house of women, among them Asya's beautiful, rebellious mother Zeliha, who runs a tattoo parlour; Banu, who has newly discovered herself as a clairvoyant; and Feride, a hypochondriac obsessed with impending disaster. And when Asya's Armenian- American cousin Armanoush comes to stay, long-hidden family secrets connected with Turkey's turbulent past begin to emerge."--Jacket
