Description

An erotic tale of passion and power and their dangerous consequences. Sheila Kohler's memoir Once We Were Sisters is now available. In 1978, Dawit, a young, beautiful, and educated Ethiopian refugee, roams the streets of Paris. By chance, he spots the famous French author M., who at sixty is at the height of her fame. Seduced by Dawit's grace and his moving story, M. invites him to live with her. He makes himself indispensable, or so he thinks. When M. brings him to her Sardinian villa, beside the Bay of Foxes, Dawit finds love and temptation--and perfects the art of deception.

Review quote
