Transform your life. Rewrite your destiny.

In his most personal novel to date, internationally best-selling author Paulo Coelho returns with a remarkable journey of self-discovery. Like the main character in his much-beloved The Alchemist, Paulo is facing a grave crisis of faith. As he seeks a path of spiritual renewal and growth, he decides to begin again: to travel, to experiment, to reconnect with people and the landscapes around him.

Setting off to Africa, and then to Europe and Asia via the Trans-Siberian Railway, he initiates a journey to revitalize his energy and passion. 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 and space, 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.

From the Hardcover edition.

The reader will easily identify with the character Paulo's search for meaning. A successful author, he nonetheless experiences a restlessness that cannot be quelled by material wealth, success, or even the acceptance and respect by his readers. In Aelph, Paulo Coehlo exposes that which every human experiences on a regular basis, but suppresses on an equally regular basis - why am I here? Not only this time around the merry-go-round that is life, but every time around? Why would my soul take this on, when enjoying the fullness of Source would seem infinitely preferable? Aelph offers some interesting possibilities, interwoven with the author's classic style, into this highly enjoyable work of fiction.
