Description

Rumi is now acknowledged as one of the great mystical poets of the Western world, with huge sales of the many collections of his poetry. Not much is known about his life except that he lived in thirteenth-century anatolla (now Turkey), had a great spiritual friendship with a wlld man called Shams, brought an adopted daughter into his family, and was distraught when Shams finally disappeared. 'Rumi's Daughter' is the delightful novel about Kimya, the girl who was sent from her rural village to live in Rumi's home. She already had mystical tendencies, and learned a great deal under Rumi's tutelage. Eventually she married Shams, an unusual husband, almost totally absorbed by his longings for God. Their marriage was fiery and different and, in the end, dissolved by Kimya's death - after which Shams vanished. 'Rumi's Daughter' tells Kimya's story with great charm and tenderness. Well written and thought-provoking, it is sure to draw comparison with Paolho Coelho's 'The Alchemist', and also to add something fresh and new to what is so far known about Rumi.
