First of all, I'd like to thank the author for giving me the chance to read her novel to review it. I appreciate that a lot :)

It's a story about Leyla who her life is not as easy as it could've been and it's all started with abandonment.

Something about this novel that is dreamy. Despite the sadness, the depression and the loss.

I wouldn't though call this a novel in the traditional novel definition because I don't think it fit under that category. It's more like a revelation in a poetry way becau

It is a story about reflections on our journey to find true love. Love is never straight forward and can lead to bitterness along the way. We may find that special one but we must set it free in order to grow.

A bittersweet tale of a woman who finds love but it disappears. Yearning for what was but could

As someone who is now quite old in the truth, my passion to do with all things love-related has, sadly, rather waned. However, whilst anticipating at the outset that my cynicism would get in the way of my enjoyment of the book, I am pleased to report that this proved not to be the case.

The never-ending quest for true and spiritual love and everything that goes with it has been the subject of much pondering through the ages and there is of course

Maha your book is grammatically correct and the storyline or plot is indicative of many people in Arab countries. It lends itself to being a very good book if the characters were developed more. Reading The Jasmine Tree I found myself skim reading because writing in a reflective mode with a one way dialogue is difficult to read. Thank you for asking me to read your book. If as your other review suggest this book is more suited to the poetry section the book would also be too long. Perhaps ...more
