The island, he discovers, is still governed by the archaic code of honour which has condemned the inhabitants to perpetual bloodshed and obliterated countless families, including Osips own.Helped by the aged Kokona, and by her earthy lover, Dev, Osip restores the watermill he has inherited. Soon, he and Bostan cross paths again. Beguiled by Bostan, Osip befriends him.

When Bostan is ambushed by other feudists and left for dead, Osip rushes to his aid. While dressing his wounds, he discovers Bostans true identity.When Bostan recovers, the two of them set out to end the eternal feuding …A deeply affecting fable that resounds with hope.Moris Farhi was born in Turkey in 1935.

He has written several novels, including Children of the Rainbow, Journey through the Wilderness and Young Turk. He is a vice-president of International PEN, and in 2001 was appointed an MBE for services to literature. He lives in London.
