The Map of Love

by Ahdaf Soueif - £9.99  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2000)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780747545637 | ISBN 10: 0747545634

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."
