Plot of the Turkish series Lovebird

The story of this Turkish series is set at the beginning of the 20th century, near the creation of the Turkish republic. It is there that Feride, a young orphan girl who was forced to live in a boarding school while visiting her aunt during the vacations, finds herself.

It is on these trips to her aunt’s house that she ends up falling in love with Kamram, her cousin, who soon becomes a respected doctor who becomes the pride of the family. What begins as an interest, mutates into a love that grows and intensifies as the days go by.

The novel itself is a journey into Feride’s life. The story is told by Feride herself, who narrates her experiences in the form of a diary.

The story is divided into several sections. In the first, Feride tells us about her childhood, starting from the beginning and ending up narrating the events that led her to end up in a hotel room. In the second section, which is the longest, her various adventures in Anatolia are described.

In the third section, we see for the first and only time a third-person narration, of someone recounting Feride’s visit home.
