Summary
"He was a Paris philosopher, headmaster and poet whose dashing good looks made women swoon. She was brilliant young scholar, beautiful and wry. Forbidden to love each other by the church and society, they defied the rules to risk everyting to follow their hearts.The first retelling of the passionate, 12th-century love story since the discovery of 113 lost love letters between Pierre Abelard and Heloise d'Argenteuil weaves the lovers' own words into an evocative account of desire and sacrifice as intimate as it is erotic, as devastating as it is beautiful." --page 4 of cover
