Three Daughters of Eve

August 7, 2017

Another engaging book I couldn’t wait reading by Elif Şafak – Three Daughters of Eve – a book about identity, politics, religion and God, provocative and philosophical as most of her writing.

The sinner, the believer and the confused – there Muslim girls all with different views in a class about ‘understanding God’ at Oxford University. And an enigmatic and controversial professor who encourages students to express their opinions.

Peri back then in her childhood, Peri back then at Oxford and Peri back now in Istanbul. The unresolved issues from the past seem to haunt her (as they do all of us) until we find the right solution for them. “Three Daughters of Eve” and the story of each girl resonated deeply with me.
