Title: Pinnacle Lust
Author: Michelle Dim-St. Pierre
Publication Date: May 2015
Paperback: 368 pages (also available as ebook)
In a Tel-Aviv hospital during Operation Desert Storm, Sharon Lapidot, a beautiful young nurse, is having an affair with a married doctor. Sharon’s colorful and exciting life is ultimately destroyed by powerful and eroding mistakes. But her courage and wisdom lead her to an unregretful commitment. Vividly told, this compelling journey of love and lust, honor and betrayal, loss and redemption, will move you–and perhaps even change you.
While I haven’t been able to finish this book as of yet, IT’s BIG, I am very intrigued by the story. Once I read the description I was curious about the story and thought I’d give it a shot. The story starts off with Sharon’s daughter Leigh receiving a package from her mother on her birthday. Inside the box is Sharon’s diary, which Leigh starts to read. This is how the story is told, with Leigh reading her mothers diary. I think the concept of this is fantastic, and reading about someone’s experience in Israel during the Gulf War is definitely a story I want to read, partially because of my religion, and partially because I think it will be amazing to “read” about a nurses experience during a war.
So with that said, I will be doing a fuller review once I am able to make it through all 368 pages.
A little about the Author:
Michelle Dim-St. Pierre was born in Tel-Aviv, Israel, where she spent more than half of her life before relocating to the United StatesShe lived through four wars and served in the Israel Defense Forces for two years. Unlike her first year of service in an armored division in the Golan Heights, she spent her second year serving in the medical corps where she interacted directly with the injured soldiers of the Peace of Galilee war and their families. This interaction, along with the exposure to the hospital atmosphere, fascinated Michelle and further touched her heart.
After graduating from nursing school with a BS in Nursing in Tel-Aviv, she practiced internationally for 32 years in various positions in the surgical field and quickly advanced into health care administration. During her career she worked in the Operating Room, Recovery Room, and CCU—along with many other duties.
Writing was Michelle’s outlet at first, but it soon became her passion. Recently she left nursing and became a full-time writer. Her international background, along with her military and nursing experience is always at the tip of her pen. Her first novel, Pinnacle Lust, starts the Pinnacle trilogy.
Michelle is a world traveler who enjoys cooking epicurean food and creating original recipes.
