Editorial Reviews

John Berendt
Fascinating, funny, harrowing, Life with a View is a breathtaking adventure, start to finish. I read it with a mixture of admiration and envy—and I couldn’t put it down.
Gael Greene
Toni Sepeda’s driving wanderlust, her passion for adventure (not to exclude dinner) and her love (and exasperation) for Turkey color this charming story of acquiring a house with a view of the sea.
Peter Kemp
Around an engrossing and sometimes hilarious account of the building of a holiday home—ten years in the making—on Turkey’s Black Sea coast, a rich social, cultural and historical hinterland is opened up. Evocative, informative and entertaining, the book brims with fascinating insights into Turkish life.
Donna Leon
In Life with a View, Toni Sepeda gives a clear-eyed and loving picture of how to get things done (or not) in Turkey—a country where she is completely at home.
John Freely
One chapter of Life with a View is worth a whole Year in Provence.
