Alice is leading a rather dull life until a seaside fortune teller and her grumpy neighbor inspires her to travel to Istanbul.
It is an easy read and most enjoyable.

It takes quite a while for this story to take-off. When it does the descriptions of the various smells becomes lyrical.
Not only does Alice have a strange journey but so does the read, although not in the way the author intended.
I found the style of writing quite lyrical at times. The story started off in London and you could feel the dampness and typical way of life for the group of youngsters there. The fortune teller part was intriguing. I am not a huge believer but have had an interesting reading years ago and many of the predictions have slotted into place since so I am open to the idea of some people seeing things beyond the way normal people do.
I liked the detective element of the story where Alice discovers who she is but the letters between Alice and Daldry I found a less interesting way of telling the story.
The end became predictable during the letter writing section even though at the time Alice was still finding her history, somehow I preferred the style of writing in the initial part of the book.
Having said all that did enjoy the story and would happily read more from this author.
