Description

Erotic, exotic, witty and wise, Harem Wish tells the stories of love between women who are worlds apart - yet hauntingly linked by an unbreakable thread over time and space.Sari is a young dancer in the ancient Middle East, sold into slavery by her parents, brought as a virgin prize to the harem of an all-powerful ruler, and willingly seduced by his magnificently sensual Nubian favorite, a young woman clever beyond her years in the ways of the world and the flesh.Codie is a young writer and editor, living in present-day Manhattan, sharing her heart and her life with her first lover, a tough and tender woman at once immensely experienced and infinitely exciting.Each tells her love story in her own fresh and compelling voice. Sari unfolds a tale of high adventure and brutal violence, suspense set against a backdrop of harem intrigues, daring escape, and the hot flare of passion between women. Codie's story, filled with a sensual, dreamy longing for love, explores a complex girlhood and charts an affair that takes her on a journey of emotion and illumination, from her discovery of ecstasy to the shattering heartbreak of betrayal.Novelist Jan Carr takes us to a world of exotic splendor and ancient savagery, of palaces, walled cities, and wine-dark seas that is as vividly real as her contemporary New York City. Even more entrancingly, she has succeeded in creating two love affairs that reflect each other as magical mirror images. Were Codie and Dee lovers in another lifetime, or is Codie's growing obsession with the shimmering, distant harem world the stuff of her imagination? As the two stories converge, the ancient one reaches a harrowing and dramatic conclusion while the modern tale offers rebirth and liberation of the spirit.show more
