I love this series. It reminds me of Jane Austin’s writing with it’s different levels of society, the intrigue, humor, romance, heart ache, the evil characters versus the good. I love the Turkish culture that Sanem is from and the protectiveness shown by her mother and father, my other favorite characters. Many others are expressing how refreshing this series is because of it’s innocence with no nudity or lewdness as is so common with the US and Europe TV .The opening music and imagery are also delightful.
