Publisher Description

Eleven Minutes is the story of Maria, a young girl from a Brazilian village, whose first innocent brushes with love leave her heartbroken. At a tender age, she becomes convinced that she will never find true love, instead believing that "love is a terrible thing that will make you suffer. . . ." A chance meeting in Rio takes her to Geneva, where she dreams of finding fame and fortune. Maria's despairing view of love is put to the test when she meets a handsome young painter. In this odyssey of self-discovery, Maria has to choose between pursuing a path of darkness -- sexual pleasure for its own sake -- or risking everything to find her own "inner light" and the possibility of sacred sex, sex in the context of love.

This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more.

Great Book!

I personally loved it, i read some other reviews saying at 22 how could she understand what love was and did what she did. But again, wouldn’t be surprised that for people that take longer to mature and expect everyone to be the same as them. They have a little knowledge of other places around the world and that everything’s different than our own place. Age does not equal maturity. Fairytale? No, that’s life outside our normal life environment. This is a great story, and so far one of the nicest books I’ve read.

Coelho is a genius

So hard to put it down. This book is the realization that although things are not perfect is never too late to go on and do what your hearts tells you to do. This is book is real. This book is magic. Thank you, Coelho.
