Publisher's Summary

Peri, a wealthy Turkish housewife, is on her way to a dinner party at a seaside mansion in Istanbul when a beggar snatches her handbag. As she wrestles to get it back, a photograph falls to the ground - an old Polaroid of three young women and their university professor. A relic from a past - and a love - Peri had tried desperately to forget. The photograph takes Peri back to Oxford University, as an 18-year-old sent abroad for the first time and to her dazzling, rebellious professor and his life-changing course on God. It also takes her to her home with her two best friends, Shirin and Mona, and their arguments about Islam and femininity and, finally, to the scandal that tore them all apart.

very beautifully narrated.

Liked the book as I do with all books of Elif Shafaq. The beginning is wonderful! however lacks the depth and magic of forty rules of love or architects apprentice. Doesn't do much justice to exploring its theme of Muslim women and their dilemmas either. No closure.
and yet because I like the politics of Elif Shafaq I found the book engaging.

A spellbinding reading of a beautifully told story

In her 2010 TED talk, Shafak says, "I love writing in Turkish which to me is very poetic and emotional, and I love writing in English which to me is very mathematical and cerebral." Well, this English novel is certainly intelligent and reasonable, but it is also a most moving and poetic piece of prose.

Alix Dunmore's performance is spellbinding. Thank you both.
