A sensuous journey into the heart of sex and passion, exploring the demands of emotion, the conditions for intimacy.
In The Price of Passion, Simone -- the orphaned, emotionally neglected daughter of a wealthy family -- must earn her inheritance by traveling the globe, delivering a message to her dying grandmother's lesbian lovers. The young woman hopes the pilgrimage will help her reconstruct her shadowed family history -- the shape of lives lived without her.
Simone discovers a universe of sexual initiation, lust, love, and desire, of great possibility and limited options, through a series of erotic encounters linked by her familial passions and worldly experience. She learns that there is a price to be paid for the emotions one is willing to feel, the truths one is capable of acknowledging.
