From award-winning writer Elif Shafak, the Orange Prize long-listed author of The Forty Rules of Love and The Architect’s Apprentice, Honour is a tale of love, betrayal and clashing cultures.

‘A powerful book; thoughtful, provoking and compassionate’ Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat

‘My mother died twice. I promised myself I would not let her story be forgotten . . .’

Leaving her twin sister behind, Pembe leaves Turkey for love – following her husband Adem to London. There the Topraks hope to make new lives for themselves and their children. Yet, no matter how far they travel, the traditions and beliefs the Topraks left behind stay with them – carried in the blood.

Their eldest is the boy Iskender, who remembers Turkey and feels betrayal deeper than most. His sister is Esma, who is loyal and true despite the pain and heartache. And, lastly, Yunus, who was born in London, and is shy and different.

Trapped by the mistakes of the past, the Toprak children find their lives shattered and transformed by a brutal act of murder . . .

A powerful novel set in Turkey and London in the 1970s, Honour explores pain and loss, loyalty and betrayal, the trials of the immigrant, the clash of tradition and modernity, as well as the love and heartbreak that too often tears families apart.
