“HOUSE OF DAUGHTERS is a thrilling blend of adventure, romance, and the personal courage of men and women, during the birth of the Turkish Republic of the 1920s. Exploring the British and Turkish conflict in Anatolia and written like a romantic fable with a dark side, the novel tells of high romance, honor, betrayal, and family saga, in a beautiful mash-up of classic and modern literature.
Taking its framing story from Jane Austen’s PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, Engin Inel Holmstrom has given Austen’s tale a modern twist with scenes of soccer matches, gun-running, cross-cultural secrets, and nationalistic fervor in a story of new beginnings, old traditions, and the rise of the new Turkish state. A sweet delight of hushed promises undermined by the demands of family, friends, country and gender, HOUSE OF DAUGHTERS is a hybrid story drawn through the eighteenth and twentieth centuries best understood in the twenty-first century. Following her debut novel LOVESWEPT, Holmstrom’s second novel uncovers a vital history of European struggle for identity, unity, and self-determination.
A proud story of unchanging human desire, conflict, and fresh hope.”
— Matt Fullerty, Author of THE KNIGHT OF NEW ORLEANS and THE MURDERESS AND THE HANGMAN
