Dear Librarians,

JASMINE NIGHTS tells the story of two young people falling in love for whom war is the greatest of adventures.  Set in 1942, its heroine, Saba Tarcan, is a headstrong young singer who defies her family to chase her dream of performing for the troops in Europe. The journey takes her to Cairo, and then to the heat and opulence of Istanbul and into the dangerous world of soldiers, wheeler dealers, and double agents. Some want her voice, and some her love, but when she meets Dom, a young R.A.F. pilot, she discovers the complexities of being a modern woman in a world she no longer understands.

Julia Gregson is the author of the award winning, international best seller, East of the SunBooklist says of JASMINE NIGHTS, "Gregson delivers in spades,"  a 'completely engrossing story about a much-chronicled war that feels thoroughly original.' Woman and Home (U.K.) says "Exotic, decadent, dangerous, and terrific storytelling."
