From the celebrated author of The Bastard of Istanbul and The Forty Rules of Love (published by Viking US and Penguin UK and translated into over 35 languages), Honour is an exhilarating, compassionate book that connects East and West in surprising ways. With a strong human focus and a keen eye for sharp humor, Shafak tells the story of a half-Kurdish half-Turkish immigrant family set against the backdrop of 1970s London. As the story unfolds, we travel from a small, remote Kurdish village by the Euphrates River to Istanbul, and from there to Europe and Abu Dhabi. At it’s heart is fourteen year old Esma - the girl whose brother killed her mother in the name of honour. As her journey unfolds, this is a story of family loyalty and how we often hurt the most those we love the most – as well as a story of music, faith, and ultimately, of redemption.
