Forty Rules of Love – Elif Shafak

This novel, by the acclaimed Turkish author, unfolds very different and parallel stories, set in different centuries and different countries. Ella, a forty-year-old American, unhappily married, and mother of three, take a job as a reviewer for a literary agent. Her first assignment is to report on a novel by Aziz Zahara called ‘Sweet Blasphemy.’ Ella is mesmerized by the story and takes its ancient middle eastern philosophy as guidance to seek her own transformation. At first, I was worried that this book might be a sappy romance, but it was not like that at all! The narrative was beautiful and lyrical. Worth reading – and I’m so glad that I took a chance on it – I loved it! (submitted by IM)
