As the reader experiences Georgia March's magical The Cat, the Belly Dancer, & the Cello set at the beginning of twentieth-century Turkey, they will discover not everything is as it seems. Each chapter is a frozen snapshot covering another, waiting to be torn away. Unexpected danger ensnares two belly dancers from Istanbul who tackle it with lighthearted ease until their efforts are met with sinister results. Forced under someone else's microscope, the women come up against aspects of their own characters that bear examination.
At the same time, a Canadian woman and her British boyfriend living in Spain venture through the centre of Turkey experiencing calamity and chaos in a country where both the language and customs bring new insight to the word foreign. Their personal backgrounds are also contrary to each other, meaning nothing is straight forward. This winding road leads them to Kas, a spellbinding place that captures their hearts and pocket books. Their lives become intricately intertwined with local Turks and they have the choice of learning to laugh at themselves or others will do it for them.
At the same time, enjoy the anecdote of two cats with their own history, ideas on justice, and view of the world.
