Travels through Novels travel blog

I enjoyed the book, but I have mixed feelings about the protagonist. I was happy she found love. I agree with the author that a life without love is hardly worth living. But didn't like how she went about it, or her hypocrisy. She had an emotional affair and she seemed horrified when her husband called her out on it. Furthermore, she tried to justify her actions by throwing his affairs back at him. As if that makes, her behavior any better.

What I liked about the novel was the story within Ella's story. I enjoyed the story of Rumi and Shams. It gave me a lot to think about regarding my spiritual beliefs and I learned more about Sufism too. Some of the sufi beliefs are not very different from my own.
