The Forty Rules of Love by Elif Shafak

Donated by Natalie Dalkiran, who says...

Here is a novel about how love works. The transformation that comes with difference; when fire loves water.

It is a story within a story. A modern, mid-life housewife yearns for more; but tumble past and you descend, as she does, into the 13th century friendship between Sufi poet Rumi and wandering dervish Shams of Tabriz, who becomes his spiritual mentor. Discover ‘rules of love’ that inspire courage, hundreds of years old. Resonant today.

Two narratives connect in a whirling dance across centuries. It’s lyrical and disarmingly beautiful. Let yourself be caught up in it, challenged. Perhaps changed.
