It talks about loneliness, desperation and confusion that anyone who has no guide to ease them into the world goes through. It also talks greatly about the human mind’s ability to repress the memories that it finds too traumatic to deal with. The plot starts out simple, an unnamed protagonist attending a funeral in his childhood hometown. He then visits the home that he and his sister grew up in, bringing back memories of a little girl named Lettie Hempstock who lived at the end of the lane, in the Hempstocks’ farmhouse, with her mother and grandmother. Lettie used to claim that the pond behind her house was an ocean.

Susan Cheever, an American writer, conveys how her love for the city of New York has left her completely unable to move to another part of the country. She describes her family as being ‘’disappointingly ordinary’’. This feeling is enhanced when her parents decide to move to ‘’a woodsy hamlet in Westchester on the Hudson River’’ adding them to the cliché of being yet another nuclear family moving to the suburbs to raise their family in a family friendly neighbourhood with white-picket fences and well-trimmed lawns. This leaves Susan Cheever feeling restless. She says: ‘’Why would I want to swim in someone’s muddy pond crawling with leeches when I could perch myself on a marble basin and cool myself with splashing clear water, topping it off with a lemonade from the cart on Fifth Avenue’’ (p. 8, ll.

It is a beautiful coming of age movie and shows the bond of sisterhood very closely almost realistically, faced by separation, suffocating traditions and loss. It depicts story of five sisters who live in a coastal town of Turkey by the Black sea, brought up by their orthodox grandmother and strict and traditionalist uncle.

They were taken in and individually beaten for their behaviour and were restricted from stepping out of the house.
