Rumi’s Daughter by Muriel Maufroy: Book Review

Rumi's Daughter by Muriel Maufroy: Book Review by Arsh Azim

So I started Rumi’s Daughter right after I finished reading Princess by Jean Sasson (in case you missed the review, here it is) and it took me almost 2 weeks to finish it because I wanted to UNDERSTAND it. Those of you who’ve read The Forty Rules of Love would know what I am trying to say here. That book was the only book that inspired me in my whole life and I wanted to read this one for the sake of that.

Rumi's Daughter by Muriel Maufroy

Rumi has been my inspiration since I got to know about him and hence books related to him are always on my list. Talking about the words used in it, it’s not as inspirational as I thought it would be but is kind of deep. It’s weird how pain is connected to happiness and confusions don’t leave you without thinking “HOW?” Kimya was brought by Rumi (adopted) for the cause of teaching and she became a part of his family. The way she was, all her life, is pretty much questionable. She was different, in all forms. She knew things that not a normal kid would know. This novel narrates how she was attracted to Shams in mysterious ways, how she married him and her soul just started dwelling into the fire, the pain!

The end? Well, it just brought tears to my eyes. I read the last page thrice to make sure what I was reading was real. I finished it at 2:00 in the night and the next hour, I couldn’t just sleep. Sad endings are torturing, man! The book was good but since the end wasn’t a happy one, I can’t complain as it’s a true story. That’s how it happened and that’s how it was just written.

My rating: 3/5 

Till next post!
