Excerpt from And Quiet Flows the Don: A Novel in Four Books
Turkey. He brought back a Wife - a little woman wrapped from head to foot in a shawl. She kept her face covered, and rarely revealed her wild, yearning eyes. The silken shawl bore the scent of strange, aromatic perfumes; its rainbow-hued patterns aroused the envy of the Cossack wom en. The captive Turkish woman kept aloof from Prokofyfs relations, and before long old Melekhov gave his son his portion. All his life the old man refused to set foot inside his son's house; he never got over the disgrace.
