Peri, a wealthy Turkish housewife, is on her way to a dinner party in Istanbul when a beggar snatches her handbag. A photograph falls to the ground - it shows three young women and their university professor. It takes her back to Oxford University, to her home with her two best friends, Shirin and Mona, and their arguments about Islam and femininity and to the scandal that tore them all apart.

Moving, subtle and ultimately hopeful, Honour is further proof that Shafak is the most exciting Turkish novelist to reach western readers in years
An intelligent, fierce and beguiling read
A thoughtful, charming book that offers a connection to other worlds, perspectives and possibilities
An intense, discursive and absorbing novel
One of the most important writers at work today, Elif Shafak eloquently explores Turkey's tumultuous present and past. Her magnificent latest moves between Istanbul and Oxford in a fascinating exploration of faith and friendship, rich and poor, and the devastating clash of tradition and modernity
A brilliant and moving novel. Elif Shafak writes about religion without superficiality or special pleading, retaining a sense of its impossible possibility or its possible impossibility. Three Daughters of Eve is a remarkable accomplishment
Elif Shafak's writing leaps off the page. In Three Daughters of Eve she takes us spine-tinglingly right under the skin of three women, exposing the strains of friendship through love and loss. An utterly engrossing read.
Shafak's topical 10th novel is both an interrogation and a defence of Muslim identity
Luscious, heartbreaking, completely absorbing. It is a full-blown saga of emotion and character, straddling countries, cultures and languages, exploring its women's ambitions and desires; and at the same time a steady-eyed examination of the nameless rules - of femininity, duty, belief and behaviour - that keep us in line and under control. This is an absolutely consuming novel about women who know what they want, and a warning about the price we pay, written with the fluency and depth of an author at the very top of her game.
Exuberant, epic and comic, fantastical and realistic . . . like all good stories it conveys deeper meanings about human experience
A powerful book; thoughtful, provoking and compassionate
A brave and passionate novel
Vivid storytelling... that explores the darkest aspects of faith and love
