Temple of Love

Temple of Love

by Laurelei Black

Sappho, the lyric poet whose life and lovers give us our current understanding of the word "Lesbian," was hailed as the Tenth Muse on her island home of Lesvos and all throughout Classical Greece. Her poems of passion and longing were directed at the men ... and women ... whom she adored and sometimes envied. In this historical fiction offering by Laurelei Black, see the life of Sappho through the lens of Aphrodite's priestesshood.
