„From Booker-shortlisted author Elif Shafak, Honour is a gripping tale of love, betrayal and clashing cultures.

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

Pembe and Adem Toprak leave Turkey for London. There they make new lives for their family. Yet the traditions and beliefs of their home come with them - carried in the blood of their children, Iskender and Esma. Trapped by past mistakes, the Toprak children find their lives torn apart and transformed by a brutal and chilling crime.

Set in Turkey and London in the 1970s, Honour explores pain and loss, loyalty and betrayal, the clash of tradition and modernity, as well as the love and heartbreak that can tear any family apart.“

This was part of my package within the Valentine‘s exchange 2024 ordered by pikkis for me.

As always, a great read this novel by Elif Shafak with the very serious and still existing topic of crime of honour. One knows very fast what happened but only in the end one knows all the circumstances and implications. A story that, as it is usually the case with Elif Shafak, travels through various stages of contemporary history, some lenghts at the beginning, but still very moving when it comes to the individual personalities and their relationships with one another. At at certain point you can‘t put it down.
Thanks once again, dear pippis, for choosing this book for me.
It will travel with me to Tampere, to be released during the Convention 2024.

Picked up at the bookcrossing convention in Tampere. I have not read this, but I enjoyed another book by her. So it will go to the UK next.
