Set in Turkey in 2000, Colleen Rae’s seventh novel, A Woman in Her Time is a compelling story of tragedy, danger, resilience, and love. Claire Bolyn has returned to Istanbul with her husband Ken to celebrate their anniversary in the place where they first met, when Al-Qaeda attacks the city. Claire goes into hiding after her husband disappears and is taken in by a Turkish family who is fleeing the danger and chaos of the attack. A Woman in Her Time is a story of survival and love, full of rich local details and sensuous layers. Colleen Rae has written a tight, well-paced novel with a cast of riveting characters, driven by tension, and laced with surprise, poignancy, and love. It’s a story that will linger long after the final page.
—Guy Biederman, author of Nova Nights, Edible Grace, Soundings & Fathoms, House Samurai, and Parts & Labor
