Three Daughters of Eve

«<b>An intense, discursive and absorbing novel</b>»

Observer
On a spring evening in Istanbul, Peri is on her way to a dinner party - a night of luxury a far cry from her upbringing. But when her handbag is stolen her world shifts violently. She starts to doubt how she got here: a traumatic Istanbul childhood, student years in Oxford, the rebellious professor who led her and best friends Shirin and Mona to question everything - Islam, love, life, even God - and the scandal that tore them all apart.

On a spring evening in Istanbul, Peri is on her way to a dinner party - a night of luxury a far cry from her upbringing. But when her handbag is stolen her world shifts violently. She starts to doubt how she got here: a traumatic Istanbul childhood, student years in Oxford, the rebellious professor who led her and best friends Shirin and Mona to question everything - Islam, love, life, even God - and the scandal that tore them all apart. Over one desperate night she tries to make sense of a past she has tried to forget - but can we ever escape who we once were?

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

«<b>An intense, discursive and absorbing novel</b>»

Observer

«<b>A terrific book. Poetic, poignant, trenchant.</b>»

«<b>An intelligent, fierce and beguiling read </b>»

Financial Times

«<b>A thoughtful, charming book</b> that offers a connection to other worlds, perspectives and possibilities»

Sunday Times

«<b>One of the most important writers at work today</b>, 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

«<b>A brilliant and moving novel.</b> Elif Shafak writes about religion without superficiality or special pleading, retaining a sense of its impossible possibility or its possible impossibility. <i>Three Daughters of Eve</i> is a remarkable accomplishment»

«Moving, subtle and ultimately hopeful, <i>Honour</i> is further proof that <b>Shafak is the most exciting Turkish novelist to reach western readers in years</b>»

Irish Times on 'Honour'

«Shafak's topical 10th novel is both an interrogation and a defence of Muslim identity»

, Financial Times

«<b>A brave and passionate novel</b>»

«<b>Luscious, heartbreaking, completely absorbing.</b> 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. <b>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.</b>»

«<b>Exuberant, epic and comic, fantastical and realistic</b> . . . like all good stories it conveys deeper meanings about human experience»

«<b>A powerful book; </b>thoughtful, provoking and compassionate»

«<b>Vivid storytelling</b>... that explores the darkest aspects of faith and love»

«Elif Shafak's writing leaps off the page. In <i>Three Daughters of Eve</i> she takes us spine-tinglingly right under the skin of three women, exposing the strains of friendship through love and loss. <b>An utterly engrossing read.</b>»
