I only read books from Kindle Unlimited for a week and these are the amazing books I got to read. The books are from various genres: romance, young adult, thrillers, comedies, and realistic fiction.
2.The Girl Who Lived: A Thrilling Suspense Novel by Christopher Greyson (Also Available on Audible)
This is the summary excerpt that hooked me. It is straight from the amazon kindle unlimited website. Even Though this story has a deep and serious topic it does include humor and irony that stems from the rage and grief of the strong and contemporary female character.
A young woman climbs the tallest tree in Istanbul’s centuries-old Gülhane Park, determined to live out the rest of her days there. Perched in an abandoned stork’s nest in a sanctuary of branches and leaves, she tries to make sense of the rising tide of violence in the world below. Torn between the desire to forget all that has happened and the need to remember, her story, and the stories of those around her, begins to unfold.
Then, unexpectedly, comes a soul mate with a shared destiny. A lonely boy working at a nearby hotel looks up and falls in love. The two share stories of the fates of their families, of a changing city, and of their political awakenings in the Gezi Park protests. Together, they navigate their histories of love and loss, set against a backdrop of societal tension leading up to the tragic bombing that marked a turn in Turkey’s democracy—and sent a young girl fleeing into the trees.
