9780670921157: Honour
Review:

Colourfully woven and beguilingly intelligent ( Daily Telegraph)

A powerful book; thoughtful, provoking and compassionate ( Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat)

A gorgeous, jewelled, luxurious book ( The Times)

Rich and wide as the Euphrates river along whose banks it begins and ends, Elif Shafak has woven with masterful care and compassion one immigrant family's heartbreaking story - a story nurtured in the terrible silences between men and women trying to grow within ancient ways, all the while growing past them. I loved this book ( Sarah Blake, author of The Postmistress)

Elif Shafak tells stories of great urgency, heart, and intellectual acuity. Honour is a powerful tale of family connection and heartbreak, offering us insight and delight in equal measure. This is a compulsively readable novel, an exquisite and deep rendering of the fullness of life. ( Aurelie Sheehan, author of The Anxiety of Everyday Objects)

Shafak will challenge Paulo Coelho's dominance ( The Independent)

An honour killing is at the centre of this stunning novel... Exotic, evocative and utterly gripping ( The Times)

Lushly and memorably magic-realist... This is an extraordinarily skilfully crafted and ambitious narrative ( The Independent)

The book calls to mind The Color Purple in the fierceness of its engagement with male violence and its determination to see its characters to a better place. But Shafak is closer to Isabel Allende in spirit, confidence and charm. Her portrayal of Muslim cultures, both traditional and globalising, is as hopeful as it is politically sophisticated. This alone should gain her the world audience she has long deserved ( The Guardian)

In Honour, Shafak treats an important, absorbing subject in a fast-paced, internationally familiar style that will make it accessible to a wide readership ( Sunday Times)

Fascinating and gripping - a wonderful novel ( Rosamund Lupton, author of Sister)

Vivid storytelling... that explores the darkest aspects of faith and love ( Sunday Telegraph)

Moving, subtle and ultimately hopeful, Honour is further proof that Shafak is the most exciting Turkish novelist to reach western readers in years ( Irish Times)

From the Publisher:

From the Orange Prize long-listed and award-winning author of The Forty Rules of Love and The Bastard of Istanbul Elif Shafak, Honour is a novel of love, betrayal and clash of cultures.

'My mother died twice. I promised myself I would not let her story be forgotten'

And so begins the story of Esma a young Kurdish woman in London trying to come to terms with the terrible murder her brother has committed. Esma tells the story of her family stretching back three generations; back to her grandmother and the births of her mother and Aunt in a village on the edge of the Euphrates. Named Pembe and Jamila, meaning Pink and Beautiful rather than the names their mother wanted to call them, Destiny and Enough, the twin girls have very different futures ahead of them all of which will end in tragedy on a street in East London in 1978.

A powerful, brilliant and moving account of murder, love and family set in a Kurdish village, Istanbul and London.
