Meses después de descubrir la infidelidad de su novio, a Elva la consume una profunda depresión. La noche de los deseos se refugia en casa ahogando sus penas entre el alcohol y la lectura el fin de semana que su ex va a contraer matrimonio. Esa noche una lluvia de estrellas fugaces surca los cielos lista para conceder deseos. Ella, aunque se resiste, finalmente sucumbe a la tentación y pide un deseo, aunque no esperaba que se cumpliera: un invitado inesperado aparece en su salón.Un deseo. Una sorprendente visita que cambiará el rumbo de dos vidas separadas por el tiempo. Una promesa que iniciará un gran viaje por Escocia en busca de respuestas y un regalo que unirá pasado y presente por toda la eternidad: el amor.

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.
