Book of the Kadin series, known as Mujer or Fuerza de Mujer

book of the seire kadin, woman, woman strength

Kadin, also known in different countries as Female, Woman Strength is based on the series Woman, my life for my children by Yuji Sakamoto. It has been an international success, broadcast in 65 countries.

An editorial phenomenon that we have seen for quite some time is that of the sale of books from series and high-grossing movies. Sometimes they are the novels on which they have been based and on others they are books that are published after television or film success. Thousands of people want to read a book about the series that they liked.

We have seen this recently with the modest Castamar or with the successful Game of Thrones.

So the case of Woman (Kadin) is especially curious, since the series ends with Bahar publishing a successful book about his life. The book really tells what we have seen in the series.

And sadly for all of you wondering, that very book that they might be selling doesn't actually exist. There is no published book on the series, even though it has everything to succeed.

Series plot (contains spoilers)

Bahar Sismeli is a widowed mother with two children who goes to one of the poorest neighborhoods in Turkey, and who suffers from a serious illness. She was abandoned by her mother when she was little and

From here we will see her day-to-day life and the sacrifices she makes for her children that will lead her to extreme and totally unlikely situations, which will combine sheer drama with touches of humor.

The return of her husband, who she believed dead, and who is now married with two children. How, unintentionally, he enters the crosshairs of different gangster groups, more and more powerful. The reconciliation with his mother, and the figure of his sister, Sirin, who is the extreme evil and the one who causes all the problems in his life.

Bahar, will fall in love with several men, will suffer losses, will re-form a family surrounded by few friends who accompany her in all the adventures, and in her extreme situations and will end up being a successful person with the publication of the book about her life.

A book that unfortunately we cannot find, even though we can see it in its physical version in the series

The background

Different ideas underlie all the action. The most important, the empowerment of women, especially in a country like Turkey where machismo is much more present than in other western countries. Bahar's story is that of a woman who gets ahead on her own, despite all the traps and tricks they put on her, independently. Also in many chapters we see references against abuse, and in favor of equality and freedom.
