Gul Irepoglu's second novel, The Concubine, is a story set in the second half of the 18th century, and concerns Sultan Abdulhamid I and a remarkable concubine of the Harem. This love story is based on real letters written by the sultan to his concubine, in which he begs for her love. While the letters from the archive are real, the story itself is a fictional one, imagined by a writer to whom the Harem life has long been a rich source of inspiration.
