As a Turk I trust the kindness of strangers. The author's grasp of the Turkish political thinking is dee with so many difficult topics found their simple definitions.
Sabral is passing us the secret of journalism in the words of Kate, the books main character. She can not or will not make a fuss about the neighbours because she is in a foreign country yet it is amazing how she has evolved herself into someone with the experience of dealing with flirting taxi drivers who --we are told-- think Western woman are loose, well just by flashing an engagement ring at them; one wonders why not a wedding ring, after all it is a justified cheat. Reading the book brings home how the police force of of Islamist government fights against anti NATO protestors, reminding us that when "higher" interests are at stake religion plays a lesser role.
If you are informed about Turkey you should definitely read Changing Borders to sip the distilled drops of knowledge mixed with fantasy and enjoy the feeling as if you are having your personal executive summary about some aspects of social and political life of a country.
For me, first meeting between Kate and Belinda as we know at a cafe-bar in Istanbul creates the most beautiful feel with somehow pieces of a puzzle falling at their right.

Several characters in the book must be either the shadows of real people or their derivatives. Apparently the author knows Istanbul well.
While Kate was struggling between the practical concerns and principals, her mind continuously discussed an idea of justice as she developed an objective criticism of various governments.
And, Mavish found a new life. That was relieving.
