Rated 5 out of 5 by from An elegant work of art I sat down last night with Shawna Lemay's new book, Rumi and the Red Handbag. Devoured it. It's a very special work of art, filled with literary, spiritual, and fashion designer references. But it's also a story of women, of friendship, and of the secrets we keep, from ourselves and others, in our purses and in our souls. You will love it. Read it.
