Freud's Mistress

ebook
"A thrilling story of seduction, betrayal, and loss, Freud's Mistress will titillate fans of Memoirs of a Geisha and The Other Boleyn Girl."—Booklist
In fin-de-siècle Vienna, it was not easy for a woman to find fulfillment both intellectually and sexually.
But many believe that Minna Bernays was able to find both with one man—her brother-in-law, Sigmund Freud.
At once a portrait of two sisters—the rebellious, independent Minna and her inhibited sister, Martha—and of the compelling and controversial doctor who would be revered as one of the twentieth century's greatest thinkers, Freud's Mistress is a novel rich with passion and historical detail and "a portrait of forbidden desire [with] a thought-provoking central question: How far are you willing to go to be happy?"*
