Description

At the end of the twentieth century, a woman's awakening passion takes her on a journey of self-discovery. Based on the myth of Psyche and Eros, this novel tells the story of a woman who boldly navigates through the complexities of love and loss, masculinity and femininity, eroticism and spirituality, to discover, in an unusual way, that she is a lesbian. Sorely wounded and disillusioned after a second failed marriage and the death of her parents, Elizabeth Burroe, a masseuse by trade, enters into the mysterious world of erotic bliss and works through four labors that forge her into the woman she was always meant to be. "How Far to Heaven" is at once a coming-out novel, a simmering love story, an intimate portrayal of the rugged green beauty of the Pacific Northwest and an intriguing illustration of how mythology can play itself out in our daily life. --- Kathleen Leonard is a freelance writer and poet. She grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and now lives in Eugene, Oregon. Her work has appeared in such publications as "West by Northwest," "Eugene Weekly" and "The Fair Family News."show more
