The all-new format of ALEPH, the third sacred journey undertaken by Paulo Coelho, following on from BRIDA and THE PILGRIMAGE. 'Poetic and uplifting' GRAZIA In his most personal novel to date, Paulo Coelho confronts a grave crisis of faith. On a journey to revitalise his energy and passion he meets Hilal. A gifted young violinist, she is the woman Paulo loved five hundred years before - and the woman he betrayed in an act of terrible cowardice, the consequences of which still echo through the centuries. But now they have the chance to take a mystical voyage through time and space, travelling a path that teaches love, forgiveness, and the courage to overcome life's challenges. Beautiful and inspiring, Aleph invites us to consider our own personal journeys: Are we where we want to be, doing what we want to do?'Superbly songful and] utterly compelling ...Coelho fans will be enchanted.'
