The Map of Love

by Ahdaf Soueif
£6.99   paperback  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2000)

The Map of Love by Ahdaf Soueif In 1900 Lady Anna Winterbourne travels to Egypt where she falls in love with Sharif, an Egyptian Nationalist utterly committed to his country's cause.
 
A hundred years later, Isabel Parkman, and American divorcee and a descendant of Anna and Sharif, goes to Egypt, taking with her an old family trunk, inside which are found notebooks and journals which reveal Anna and Sharif's secret.

"Filled with subtlety, grace and beauty... The Map of Love is honest and intellectual. It takes on a range of topics in the way Dickens did, fusing life, art, history, class and culture into a huge, vibrant novel."
