Transform your life. Rewrite your destiny.
In his most personal novel to date, Paulo Coelho returns with a remarkable tale of self-discovery. Much like the shepherd boy Santiago in his bestselling novel The Alchemist, Paulo has recently been brought low by a grave crisis of faith. Seeking a path of spiritual renewal and growth, he sets off on a trip via the Trans-Siberian Railway in order to meet new people and revitalize his passion for life. Even so, he never expects to meet Hilal. A gifted young violinist, she is the woman Paulo loved five hundred years before—and the woman he betrayed in an act of cowardice so far reaching that it prevents him from finding real happiness in this life. Together they will initiate a mystical voyage through time, traveling a path that teaches love, forgiveness, and the courage to overcome life’s inevitable challenges. Beautiful and inspiring, Aleph invites us to consider the meaning of our own personal journeys: Are we where we want to be, doing what we want to do?
Some books are read. Aleph is lived.
