sex-soul-124Sex and Soul: A Memoir of Salvation is about the quest to reconcile body and soul. It is an intimate look at the author’s struggle between the dictates of her Catholic upbringing and the call to be true to her own sense of self. Sex and Soul is a frank and often funny account of how one woman’s road to damnation became her sole path to salvation.
