This enchanting story, set in the late 1940s, takes us from the hills and piazzas of Florence to the green- domed mosques of Konya, Turkey. Upon discovering a poem by the Sufi dervish Jelaluddin Rumi, Georgiou, a young Greek icon painter, is compelled to travel to the land that this poet called home. Inspired by Rumi's magical words, Georgiou leaves his father and their small business in Italy to recapture the power of an early childhood vision. Having experienced a divine connection with a painting as a boy, he seeks to reconnect with the essence of that first transcendent feeling.
Through encounters with Christian and Islamic mystics, Georgiou learns to hear his own voice calling and understand what we all eventually learn - that life is a mystery. The closer he gets to Konya, the keener his perceptions become. But it is not until his arrival that he understands ⳨ at earthly and spiritual love, when they are total and without reserve, become one and the same⪠ and Georigiou's life is changed forever.
