Feride and Nil?fer lead a elegant and comfortable life in Turkish aristocratic society until their lives are turned upside down by Atat?rk?s fight for independence after WWI. Finding strength and courage they didn?t know they had, the women become pioneers for the freedom of their countrywomen.

When their husbands leave to join general Atat?rk in the fight for a new Turkey, Feride and Nil?fer dress in disguises and follow them. Through rain and mud and past glittering snowy peaks, the inexperienced women are plunged into hardships they had never dreamed of - learning to cook, living with the roar of Greek guns, and fearing the horrors of military disaster. The magnetic Atat?rk, having led his forces victoriously against the Greeks, proceeded to cajole and bully his people into trading the fez for hats and adopting a new alphabet. Almost overnight, Atat?rk- with the help of courageous women like Feride ? turned Turkey into a 20th-century nation.

While the characters are fictitious, all of the events that take place in The Dark Moment happened to people Ann Bridge met on her travels. With this exciting theme and background, Ann Bridge has written a one-sitting kind of book that combines the excitement of a well-told story with the dramatic appeal of history in the making.
