“A twisting tale of destiny, secrets and growth." - World Literature Today

Her name is Didem, a young Turkish university student. Though she has left her veil behind in the provincial village she grew up in, she is still watched over closely by her father and certain friends. But when she meets Victor, an American instructor at the university, and they fall in love, Didem is propelled into an entirely new and dangerous future. The obstacles and threats they face lead Didem and Victor into plans of escape, an escape Didem must keep secret. SILK ARMOR follows her adventure through her battles with her community, her culture, her traditions and conscience, leading to her realization that though these battles may be lost her war can still be won.

"A powerful story of cultural ties, veiled existence, and deep-seated beliefs."- Literary R&R

Review:

“Sydenham’s power of crafting characters that walk the pages as individuals with their own thickly layered struggles . . . is compelling enough to make readers turn inside to the truths within themselves.” World Literature Today

“This is a complex and layered story. As we zigzag and meander dizzyingly into the past, the present, and back, we are pulled into a tale that is sad, tragic yet strangely illuminating.” - Guiltless Reading

“Readers will connect with the beauty of the love affair . . . Silk Armor is definitely a book that demands a second-look.” - The Coffee Pot

“I found myself caught up in the characters’ struggles and wanting to learn more about the world in which they live.” - Books Without Any Pictures

“A powerful story of cultural ties.” - Literary R&R
