I have read a number of books by Elif Shafak, all of them have been rich, immersive reads. I loved this book, set in the 1500's, because the story follows a young boy (Jahan) throughout his life, exploring his relationships in love, friendship, with work colleagues, and with the wonderful elephant, Chota. I found it spellbinding.
