Mustafa Kemal Ataturk is hailed as one of the most charismatic political leaders of the twentieth century, but little is known today about his one and only wife, Latife Hanim. A multilingual intellectual educated at the Sorbonne, Latife's marriage to Ataturk in 1923 raised her to the pinnacle of political power. Hanim played a central role in the creation of a modern and secular Turkey and championed the emancipation of women. Throughout her marriage, she stood beside her husband, and acted as his interpreter, promoter and diplomatic aide. However, after only two years of marriage, Ataturk divorced Latife, who was shunned and blamed for the failure of the marriage. She spent the rest of her life in seclusion. An international bestseller, this intimate biography vividly brings to life the story of an exceptional and courageous woman, well ahead of her time, who lived through a remarkable period in Turkish history.
