The Map of LoveThe Map of Love by Ahdaf Soueif

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is story of Isabel Parkman who is in search of the roots of her Egyptian ancestry.

Her mother, lady Anna Winterbourne travels to Egypt in 1900 and falls in love with Sharif, an Egyptian Nationalist who defy his own costumes by marrying an English lady.

The story has several narrators and the plot is alternated between past and present times.

Even so, the author knows how to keep our attention into the plot since her narrative naturally flows the pace of the events.
