    A Story of How Lust Effects the Human Spirit

    Most of us have at least a vague notion that there are complications that will be endured by anyone involved in an extra-marital affair. “Pinnacle Lust” by Michelle Dim-St. Pierre details in specific terms most of those complications and how they can impact the next generation. The main character in Dim-St. Pierre’s striking novel, Leigh, discovers in her mother’s journal the secret life of a beautiful young nurse who lusts after a married doctor, both of whom give in to temptation – often and passionately. As Leigh reads of her mother’s affair, she also learns about love and hate, lust and anger, as well as the power of love and the resilience of the human spirit. While reading the story of this intense love affair I also learned a great deal about the culture of Israel and how the Jewish religion influences the nation and all of its people. The author loads the story with several surprises and twists so that just when you think you know what’s coming next the plot turns elsewhere. I reached the point where I could not put the book down until finishing and was fascinated by the ending. A transforming story of romance, lust, love, intrigue and interpersonal puzzles awaiting answers – some of which never come. “Pinnacle Lust” is well worth reading and I highly recommend you do so.

    A Vivid Saga of an Israeli Woman's World

    Pinnacle Lust is an unexpected story that tells of a 'kosher good girl' born in Israel who happens to be a secular Jew with no religious interests or desires to be radical. One might expect from the novel's title and cover art that this is to be a story of sexual discovery; but it also is a story of a daughter discovering her mother's deepest secret, which began before Leigh was born and is steeped in stories of relationships that break boundaries, religious roots, and heritage alike. Yes, readers can expect a lusty story; but that doesn't mean it's packed with steamy sex scenes: it also comes filled with cultural observation, psychological revelations, and accounts of military training discussing the finer lines between bravery and stupidity. Will her mother's lies repeat in her daughter's life? Will erotic choice translate to the ability to overcome adversity and betrayal to reach new pinnacles of achievement? Be forewarned: there are affairs between professionals, discussions of the positive and negative forces of love, Israeli culture and Jewish religion, and everyday life in an Israeli young woman's world: multifaceted matters that weave a satisfyingly complex yarn of passion, redemption, and exploration against the backdrop of a nation at war.
