The Forty Rules of Love: A Novel of Rumi

Elif Shafak

$18.00 $16.56

Barbara's Pick: This is a contemporary story juxtaposed with Rumi’s life in the 13th century; the two stories intertwine, revolving around Rumi’s actual teachings of love. Not a new selection, but definitely one of the most beautifully composed novels and bestselling visionary fiction at Mirabai.

The Overstory

Richard Powers

$18.95 $17.43

Jeff's Pick: A brilliant work illustrating man's connection to the natural world - specifically, the tree kingdom. A fierce and passionate work that will lead you to ponder the fate of every tree you come across.

The Book of Longings

Sue Monk Kidd

$28.00 $25.76

Audrey's Pick: Sue Monk Kidd's latest is the story of Ana, a rebellious free spirit (she reminds us so much of our namesake Mirabai), who falls in love with and marries Jesus in the "lost years" prior to his ministry. A tale of a woman living her authentic self.


Madeline Miller

$16.99 $15.63

Jeff's Pick: In Greek mythology Circe is the sorceress daughter of Helios and Perse. Her story is one of standing tall and alone in a world in which you are largely unwanted. Her story is riveting, delivered flawlessly by Madeline Miller.

The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge

Carlos Castaneda

$9.99 $9.19

Jeff's Pick: A quest for self knowledge among the indigenous people's of Mexico. A story of magic, the power of intention and conviction. But the question remains, is this fiction or non-fiction? It's part of the magic.

The Dalai Lama's Cat

David Michie

$15.99 $14.71

Barbara's Pick: Scratch the surface of this delightful little tale and you'll find a wealth of Buddhist wisdom cloaked in the musings of a droll kitty who's not only charming and hilarious but quotes The Great Gatsby.

The Water Dancer

Ta-Nehisi Coates

$28.00 $25.76

Jennifer's Pick: A story of slavery and deliverance. I loved this novel for the way it weaves magic into historical events. It follows the journey of Hiram as he struggles to find freedom, coming to terms with a rare gift along the way. Beautiful writing - I like reading it a bit at a time, because it's words are to be savored.


Hermann Hesse

Jeff's Pick: Perhaps the most inspiring tale of self discovery and coming of age ever written.

Children of Blood and Bone

The Red Tent - 20th Anniversary Edition

Anita Diamant

$18.00 $16.56

Barbara's Pick: The Book of Genesis is not a text brimming with women's stories. Enter Dinah, daughter of Jacob, who ushers us into the world of the Red Tent and ancient womanhood. An intimate portrait of the women are only hinted at in the Bible. Their stories are triumphant.
