Set in Istanbul in 1720, Leyla's travels bring her to the Topkapi Palace harem where she learns that life is very different from the way she was raised. She has secretly stashed tulips from her homeland in her belongings and her abilities as a gardener help her along. I enjoyed the story but believe that many girls that in slavery do not have such a good ending. Leyla's many talents were noticed and she is able to enjoy the fruits of her labor. A little is said about some of the other girls and of what happens to them through the course of the book. Nonetheless a good book to read with girls you know and to use as a starting point for discussing issues that occur in the book.
