For young Tomas, nothing in Istanbul is certain, except for the lamppost that he touches every day for luck on his way to school. World War Two rages, the specter of the Armenian genocide haunts his parents and he is unsure of the affections of his neighbor Anya, the daughter of White Russian emigres.
Anya and Tomas fall in love. Ten years on, Anya is in the United States studying medicine while Tomas tries to scrape together enough money to join her. He becomes the editor of a new literary magazine, and things seem to be going his way until one of his writers is brutally murdered, apparently because of a story Tomas has published. Can Tomas flee the country and rejoin Anya before getting caught up in the murder investigation?

For love, being held back is unacceptable. "The Lamppost Diary" is a romance and mystery telling of Anya and Tomas. Anya has already made it to America, as Tomas struggles as a magazine editor putting it together to follow. But as murder strikes his publishing business, he finds his own life might be threatened and he may be further from Anya than he wishes. Racing against time, and driven by love, Tomas views fleeing as the only option. "The Lamppost Diary" is a riveting piece of fiction, highly recommended. --Midwest Book Review
