Read full description of the books:



Tvíburasysturnar Jamila og Pembe eru fæddar og uppaldar í kúrdísku þorpi. Jamila verður ljósmóðir en Pembe fylgir eiginmanni sínum, Adem, til London.

Í nýju landi verða þau að velja á milli gamalla hefða og nútímalegs borgarlífs. Þegar Adem lætur sig hverfa tekur elsti sonurinn, Iskender, við hlutverki þess sem á að verja heiður fjölskyldunnar. Hann telur hægt að elska manneskju af hug og hjarta en vera jafnframt reiðubúinn til þess að gera henni mein.
