Summary ""It's hard for me to picture my mother in love," Agnes's elderly son, George, admits, but that doesn't stop him from telling the story of his mother and the Turk." "When Josef Iljasic leaves for America in the spring of 1914, his wife, Agnes, believes that he will one day return to their village in Hungary. Instead, the Great War rises up between them, and Agnes is left with her mother-in-law, wondering if Josef is still alive. In the village, with their men gone, Agnes and her mother-in-law agree to take in the Turk - a handsome prisoner of war - to help out with heavy tasks on the farm."--BOOK JACKET
