Product description

From the Inside Flap

Set across Istanbul and Oxford, from the 1980s to the present day, Three Daughters of Eve is a sweeping tale of faith and friendship, tradition and modernity, love and an unexpected betrayal.

Peri, a wealthy Turkish housewife and mother, 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 nineteen year old sent abroad for the first time. To her dazzling, rebellious Professor and his life-changing course on God. To the house she shares with her two best friends, Shirin and Mona, and their arguments about identity, Islam and feminism. And finally, to the scandal that tore them all apart.

Shirin, Peri and Mona, they were the most unlikely of friends. They were the Sinner, the Believer and the Confused.

A terrific book. Poetic, poignant, trenchant. -- Ian Rankin

An intelligent, fierce and beguiling read Financial Times

A thoughtful, charming book that offers a connection to other worlds, perspectives and possibilities ― Sunday Times

An intense, discursive and absorbing novelObserver

One of the most important writers at work today, Elif Shafak eloquently explores Turkey's tumultuous present and past. Her magnificent latest moves between Istanbul and Oxford in a fascinating exploration of faith and friendship, rich and poor, and the devastating clash of tradition and modernity ― Independent

A brilliant and moving novel. Elif Shafak writes about religion without superficiality or special pleading, retaining a sense of its impossible possibility or its possible impossibility. Three Daughters of Eve is a remarkable accomplishment -- Richard Holloway

Elif Shafak's writing leaps off the page. In
Three Daughters of Eve she takes us spine-tinglingly right under the skin of three women, exposing the strains of friendship through love and loss. An utterly engrossing read. -- Frances Osborne, bestselling author of The Bolter

Shafak's topical 10th novel is both an interrogation and a defence of Muslim identity -- Rebecca Rose ―
Financial Times

Luscious, heartbreaking, completely absorbing. It is a full-blown saga of emotion and character, straddling countries, cultures and languages, exploring its women's ambitions and desires; and at the same time a steady-eyed examination of the nameless rules - of femininity, duty, belief and behaviour - that keep us in line and under control. This is an absolutely consuming novel about women who know what they want, and a warning about the price we pay, written with the fluency and depth of an author at the very top of her game. -- Bidisha

Exuberant, epic and comic, fantastical and realistic . . . like all good stories it conveys deeper meanings about human experience -- Financial Times on 'The Architect's Apprentice'

A powerful book; thoughtful, provoking and compassionate -- Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat, on 'Honour'

A brave and passionate novel -- Paul Theroux on 'Bastard of Istanbul'

Vivid storytelling... that explores the darkest aspects of faith and love -- Sunday Telegraph on 'Honour'

Moving, subtle and ultimately hopeful,
Honour is further proof that Shafak is the most exciting Turkish novelist to reach western readers in yearsIrish Times on 'Honour' --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Story of love
By Prat on 11 September 2018
It’s Story of Peri , a woman from Upper middle class In Istanbul. Gripping novel takes in and out of her college days at Oxford. It’s a story of how love can dominate the best of yourself and make one do something which otherwise one never will. Also how just small events in life alter course of events for oneself as well as others.
