Synopsis

*The international bestseller from the author of the Booker-shortlisted novel, 10 Minutes 38 Seconds in this Strange World*



* One of the BBC's '100 Novels that Shaped the World'*



"Every true love and friendship is a story of unexpected transformation. If we are the same person before and after we loved, that means we haven't loved enough..."



Ella Rubinstein has a husband, three teenage children, and a pleasant home. Everything that should make her confident and fulfilled. Yet there is an emptiness at the heart of Ella's life - an emptiness once filled by love.



So when Ella reads a manuscript about the thirteenth-century Sufi poet Rumi and Shams of Tabriz, and his forty rules of life and love, her world is turned upside down. She embarks on a journey to meet the mysterious author of this work.



It is a quest infused with Sufi mysticism and verse, taking Ella and us into an exotic world where faith and love are heartbreakingly explored. . .



'Enlightening, enthralling. An affecting paean to faith and love' Metro



'Colourfully woven and beguilingly intelligent' Daily Telegraph



'The past and present fit together beautifully in a passionate defence of passion itself' The Times
