I haven’t been able to settle into many books this week. I’ve read a few partial books but they aren’t holding my interest.
The Oracle of Stamboul by Michael David Lukas
Eleonora is born in Romania in 1877. It is clear that she is a gifted child. When she is eight she goes with her father to Stamboul on a business trip. Her world expands to include a potential spy, a possible revolutionary, and the Sultan.
This was an interesting book. It isn’t like anything I’ve read before. It combines historical fiction with a bit of magical realism.
