This fantastic Turkish soap opera is a very well-structured melodrama, as it manages to keep the viewer glued to the couch throughout all its episodes. This production alternates a perfect dose of intensity, romance and tragedy.

Plot of this Turkish TV Series
The plot of this series revolves around Tahsin Korludağ the patriarch of an important and wealthy family, being a highly respected and feared man among his acquaintances and the town where his family lives. He has a son named Korhan, who is not even the shadow of what his father represents, contrasting sharply with the image of his sister and daughter of Tahsin, Suhan.
She is intelligent, calculating and obedient, always looking out for the good of her family. Everything gets complicated when her glen (Korhan’s wife) Cahide tries to assassinate Suhan fearing that Suhan will get pregnant before she can take over the leadership of the family and the properties.
All his machinations come crashing down when an anonymous (and until then unknown) saves Suhan’s life. His name is Cesur and as the story progresses, his true motivations will be revealed and his appearance is no mere coincidence.
Many will consider it an archetypal story of betrayal and romance, but we must highlight its artistic and narrative value, since it deals with themes such as female leadership, the power of money, fears, ambition and family tribal fights to gain access to the wealth of the family regardless of the consequences.
It is undoubtedly one of the Turkish novels translated into English that you cannot miss
