The Harem is a dramatic romance novel testing cultural boundaries through the innocent eyes of Susan Winthrop. Getting the dream internship of her life, Susan quickly discovers there is much more involved than she ever bargained for or could have possibly imagined. Susan Winthrop, a shy, self-conscious, nineteen-year-old college student struggling to find her way in life without the support of family, discovers the position of her dreams, or so she thinks, until the requirements of the internship and potential employment are revealed. While Susan struggles with her own morals, she discovers an entirely new world opening to her and her desires. Slowly, she begins to embrace this new position and excel, realizing her own amazing potential in ways she never envisioned and that some may fear. However, her new found love, friends and colleagues prove fallible. Susan soon discovers that the result of making mistakes at this new level of life are far reaching and can be extremely dangerous and damaging. The innocent struggle of a young, budding college student suddenly unfolds into a struggle for life in an extremely hostile social and political world that abhors change and regularly embraces fear and persecution. As Susan wrestles with her new found knowledge, power, wealth and life, she is forced to fight to defend her right to grow as she sees fit. **Rated R** Erotic, Romance Novel… (more)

WOW! This is a very powerful story. Some may believe I have a bias opinion because of my role assisting, but this is a story I have never seen before. I've been assisting with the editing for The Harem for the last few months. The novel is almost complete and looks like it will be out as scheduled for early December 2014.

The journey the main character, Susan Winthrop aka Wednesday, embarks on is like none I've ever heard, read or seen in a movie, television or theater. The story gives the impression of a harem, but there are a variety of deep and subtle messages the author has entwined into the characters that goes far beyond the commonly expected concepts, knowledge and beliefs.

I have been sucked into Wednesday's life. She starts off as a naive college student who blossoms into a strong, confident, successful and powerful woman who has the ability to influence those around her and the world, even when the Program is called into question by people who fear or do not understand it.

This is a must read for all women. However, I do caution parents of teens because of some of the sexual descriptions and content. This is a book that every woman from college through adulthood MUST READ.

The Harem will make you look at life differently. The Harem will make you look at the world differently. Every woman in the world has the ability to experience and create a life that Wednesday crafts for herself in the novel. The only question is, are you ready to take your own journey? ( )

WOW!!!! This is a MUST READ! I LOVED it! 5STARS

I was instantly swept into the life of Susan Winthrop (aka Wednesday) and the whirlwind journey of her life. The story kept me captivated the entire time; I had trouble putting the book down because I NEEDED to know what was going to happen next. I could relate to every character in the book in one form or another. My perspective on life has immensely changed for the positive and I'm ever grateful to have read it. This is definitely a story that will be re-read by me! I'm sure that there are many subtle nuances that I have missed.

I hope that you take the wonderful journey with Susan Winthrop and that your life is touched in a profound way like mine has been. I will never be the same; for the betterment of myself and those around me.

To everyone: WE ARE ONE! ( )
