About this title
An eighteenth-century lady haunted by dreams of infamous fallen women and their lovers realizes that these women's lives bear a remarkable resemblance to her own and is told by a mystic that her dreams are memories of past lives and that she must face the public to vindicate all women falsely accused of crimes.Review:
John Rechy, whose previous novels include 4th Angel, City of Night and The Miraculous Day of Amalia Gomez: A Novel, is back with this retelling of the stories of the fallen women of history. When an 18th-century French noblewoman has vivid dreams of the lives of Eve, the whore of Babylon, Medea and Mary Magdalene, she comes to realize that they are more than just somnambulant imaginings. Rather, they are actual memories. With the help of Madame Bernice, a friend and mystic, she sets out to tell the true stories of their lives.
