Zaytuna just wants to be left alone to her ascetic practices and nurse her dark view of the world. But when an impoverished servant girl she barely knows comes and begs her to bring some justice to the death of a local boy, she is forced to face the suffering of the most vulnerable in Baghdad and the emotional and mystical legacy of her mother, a famed ecstatic whose love for God eclipsed everything. The Lover is a historically sensitive mystery that introduces us to the world of medieval Baghdad and the lives of the great Sufi mystics, washerwomen, Hadith scholars, tavern owners, slaves, corpsewashers, police, and children indentured to serve in the homes of the wealthy. It asks what it means to have family when you have nearly no one left, what it takes to love and be loved by those who have stuck by you, and how one can come to love God and everything He’s done to you. PRAISE FOR THE LOVER For me, this book is medicine. Unlike anything else I’ve read, this book has stayed deep in my heart long after I finished reading. I find myself returning to Zaytuna’s experiences over and over again as I ponder my own life story. Whatever your own story, whatever life has thrown at you, this book is for you. –Sarah Shah, Post-Doctoral Fellow, Institute for Islamic Studies, University of Toronto Dr. Laury Silvers debut novel transports the reader to 10th century Baghdad, during the city’s golden age when it was one of the largest and most diverse cities in the world. Her exquisite descriptions of the city and erudite knowledge of its historical denizens render real the people of Baghdad to the reader, whether pious mystics, cynical wine merchants, or frontier soldiers turned detectives. It’s a great mystery and its faithful portrayal of Baghdad makes it a compelling read for anyone interested in the history of Islam and the Medieval Middle East. –Sherwan Hindreen Ali, a native Baghdadi and graduate student in the Institute for Islamic Studies, McGill University This is a novel that will both entertain readers and educate them about a wide range of subjects relating to intellectual, social and cultural history of the period in which it is set. It successfully weaves together fiction with meticulous historical research. –Michael Mumisa, Cambridge Special Livingstone Scholar With an informed, historical view of the spiritual atmosphere in medieval Baghdad, Laury Silvers has written an exciting mystery in lucid, gripping prose, bringing to life complex individuals of the past, moral agents both layered and conflicted. –Cyrus Ali Zargar, Al-Ghazali Distinguished Professor, UCF and Author of The Polished Mirror (cont. from above) …As a Shia Muslim and a woman, I find both subjectivities well represented in these pages. I was in tears–both happy and sad–as I pored over Ammar’s story, whose Shianess was real and centered. This book is a window into the rich lives of poor women in early Baghdad, a perspective long ignored by mainstream Muslim writers. Through witty and sassy conversations, we peer into these women’s tragic yet terrific adventures, finding our way to wholeness alongside the protagonists. –Sarah Shah, Post-Doctoral Fellow, Institute for Islamic Studies, University of Toronto The Lover drew me into an exciting mystery full of hope, anger, fear and all kinds of love. So much of it rang true to life. I am left longing to read more about the lives and adventures of these endearing characters. I enjoyed how lovingly Silvers crafted her characters with all of their realness. The brother-sister dynamic between Zaytuna and Tein was very enjoyable. It was so fun to explore the height of Abbasid Baghdad through fiction, especially as a former Middle Eastern studies student. The depth of research Silvers has put into the setting of this novel illuminates the narrative. I can’t wait to read more! –Katherine Ball, Chairperson of the Migrant Workers Protection Society, Bahrain. Laury Silvers is a visiting research fellow at the University of Toronto.
