Summary (From the publisher):

A young man falls in love with a woman betrothed to the nephew of a leading churchman. When their secret meetings are discovered, she is confined to the house, their beautiful dreams crushed by a cruel society. Drawing on personal experience, Kahlil Gibran describes their emotional upheavals with a sharp eye and an eloquent pen.

Broken Wings, his longest sustained narrative, also illuminates many of his central concerns: the plight of Eastern women; wealth as an impediment to happiness; the greed and corruption of the clergy; and the overwhelming power of love to transport us into a transcendent texts adds a fresh dimension to our understanding of his whole philosophy and career.
