Editorial Reviews

From the author of The Architect's Apprentice and Honour, The Forty Rules of Love is Elif Shafak's compelling and profound novel following Ella Rubinstein on a journey of self-discovery, examining life and love through Sufi mysticism.

Discover the forty rules of love...

Ella Rubinstein has a husband, three teenage children and a pleasant home. Everything that should make her confident and fulfilled. Yet there is an emptiness at the heart of Ella's life - an emptiness once filled by love.

So when Ella reads a manuscript about the thirteenth-century Sufi poet Rumi and Shams of Tabriz and his forty rules of life and love, her world is turned upside down. She embarks on a journey to meet the mysterious author of this work.

It is a quest infused with Sufi mysticism and verse, taking Ella and us into an exotic world where faith and love are heartbreakingly explored.
