Overview

Nacieron del mismo vientre y casi al mismo tiempo: Pembe y Jamila eran gemelas, hijas de una familia numerosa que vivía en un pequeño pueblo de Kurdistán, pero la voluntad del padre las separó y llevó sus vidas por caminos distintos.

En 1970 Pembe y su marido Adem se trasladan a Londres, en busca de un mejor destino para sus hijos Alex, Esma y Yunus, dejando a Jamila en el pueblo, aunque el matrimonio está destinado al fracaso desde el principio. Harta de soportar un marido infiel y jugador, Pembe se aleja poco a poco de Adem y encuentra finalmente a un hombre con quien compartir su destino, pero Alex entiende esta nueva relación de la madre como una enfrenta al honor de la familia y toma cartas en el asunto, sin darse cuenta de que está cometiendo un error que marcará a la familia para siempre.

De un pequeño pueblo de Kurdistán a Londres, pasando por Estambul y Abu Dhabi,Elif Shafak ha urdido una trama apasionante y polémica para su nueva novela. Con ella vamos a recorrer los hilos de una historia donde la tradición de Oriente y Occidente muestran su lado más oscuro: cuando se habla y se actúa en nombre de un honor que ya no tiene dueño ni sentido, se anda en la desgracia, y los cuerpos de Pembe y Jamila ahí están para contestar a quien pregunte.

«Cuando tenía siete años, uno de nuestros vecinos, sastre de profesión, a menudo pegaba a su esposa. Por la noche, todo el vecindario oía los gritos, los golpes, los insultos, pero por la mañana cada cual se ocupaba de lo suyo, como si nadie hubiera visto ni oído nada Esta novela está dedicada a los que quieren oír y ver.»
