“Not wanted” is a love story waiting to be read, yet the ending is quite the opposite of loving. We start the story about hearing about our main character, Osman.
Osman starts off working for a mean hotel-owner who practically pays his employees with breadcrumbs. It is a sad life for Osman, being the oldest in the family, living in Turkey, working for a mean employer and not earning enough for his family.
One day a beautiful lady comes into the hotel, Liz, she has just gone through a horrible break-up and now she is just looking for a quiet place to be alone, and just think things through. The important part is that no one could recognize her, which is why she has gone to Turkey from Leeds, an English city. So, she has travelled a very long way for peace.
