Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This gothic romance is ideal for book clubs. A clash of cultures and religions. The theme of frustrated sexuality, eroticism, infanticide. This story is an original slant on a classic human dilemma. A re-enlivening of subconscious longings, the projection of sexual phantasy; the bringing to life in ideal form turned to nightmare. There is nothing on the market resembling this well-wrought novel. A young woman's search for faith destroyed by her deepest feelings. Does the dangerous angel exist or is he a figment? Originating in every day experiences this story transcends to a metaphysical level threatening the stability of its protagonist. A love affair across the religious divide, Christian and Muslim, set against the backdrop of Paris.
