This is without doubt one of the most memorable books I’ve read ever and I don’t know anyone who hasn’t enjoyed it as much as I did.  You’ll find it easy reading and you won’t put it down until you’ve finished it.

Eleven Minutes Synopsis

A chance meeting in Rio takes Maria to Geneva, where she dreams of finding fame and fortune, yet ends up working the streets as a prostitute. In Geneva, Maria drifts further and further away from love while at the same time developing a fascination with sex.

Eventually, Maria's despairing view of love is put to the test when she meets a handsome young painter. In this odyssey of self-discovery, Maria has to choose between pursuing a path of darkness, sexual pleasure for its own sake, or risking everything to find her own 'inner light' and the possibility of sacred sex, sex in the context of love.
