Istiklâl Sayfa: The Freedom Pages
Mara Faulkner, English
A novella that explores how people of faith integrate belief with a world which continues to grow more secular. The novella is set in Turkey and encompasses a snapshot of this country as a world divided between rural vs. urban and traditional vs. modern. These opposing forces are paralleled with the main female character who is experiencing a similar conflict within herself. The novella raises questions relevant to any person of faith who struggles to remain integrated within a fragmented secular world.
