Beth Helms, winner of the 2003 Iowa Short Fiction Award, presents this work. Helms draws from her childhood experiences living abroad in the Middle East to write this compelling story of a mother and daughter living in Ankara, Turkey as the wife and child of an American diplomat. Restless within their closed community of Westerners and rich Turks, the two decide to venture outside the safety of their isolated community.
