Description

The novel A Gallipoli Soldier's Secret is the story of a New Zealand woman's pilgrimage to Turkey to discover the truth about her great-grandfather's fate - a Gallipoli soldier who never returned home. During her search she stumbles over dark secrets which have been hidden in a Turkish village for decades. They are so sensitive that disclosure threatens embarrassment for villagers and two old foes -New Zealand and Turkey. Lyrically written, A Gallipoli Soldier's Secret paints an informative picture of life in a Turkish village, Turkish culture and history, and the suffering and annihilation Turks endured in WWI. It follows the war through the stories of two soldiers - New Zealander Alistair John Taylor and Turk Ali Osman. Their lives converge with unexpected consequences. A Gallipoli Soldier's Secret is unique in that it provides a glimpse of the war from a Turkish perspective. It also vividly reveals village life and a journey of inner conflict and self-discovery.
