In this lyrical, exuberant follow-up to "The Bastard of Istanbul," acclaimed Turkish author Shafak unfolds two tantalizing parallel narratives--one contemporary and the other set in the 13th century--that together incarnate the poet Rumi's timeless message of love.
This was a great story! One that is still resonating through me since I just put the book down.
How the story of love and its universal hold on us all, and how we need to see the value of love for what it is, is simply beautifully written. I admired the words I was reading more than once throughout this book. The author has such an eloquent way of telling a story.
Definitely one I would mention to my lady friends, but my manly ones, not so sure it's for you. If this book was a movie, it would be considered a chick-flick. I'm a chick though, so I can dig it!
