The Forty Rules Of Love By Elif Shafak
Ella Rubinstein has a husband, three teenage children, and a pleasant home. Everything that should make her confident and fulfill. Yet there is an emptiness at the heart of Ella’s life – an emptiness once filled by love.
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. . .
