Feature and Follow Friday # 5

 Feature & Follow Friday and How it Works:

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by Parjunkee and Alison Can Read. This week's F&F topic/question is: 

If you could only have ONE – one book – for the rest of your life. Don’t cheat…what would it be?

This is a really tough question. I'm going to go with The Turkish Lover by Esmeralda Santiago. I read the first book in this series of memoirs in an English course and I fell in love with the story. I ran and got the the rest of the books. This is the last in the series. I think I could live reading it over and over again...

The Turkish Lover by Esmeralda Santiago  

Goodreads Blurb

Enthralled admirers of Esmeralda Santiago's memoirs of her childhood have yearned to read more. Now, in The Turkish Lover, Esmeralda finally breaks out of the monumental struggle with her powerful mother, only to elope into the spell of an exotic love affair. At the heart of the story is Esmeralda's relationship with "the Turk," a passion that gradually becomes a prison out of which she must emerge to become herself. The expansive humanity, earthy humor, and psychological courage that made Esmeralda's first two books so successful are on full display again in The Turkish Lover.
