Sappho's Leap by Erica Jong

Sappho's infamous journey begins at fourteen when her lover Alcaeus is exiled. Married off and unhappy, Sappho sets off on a journey to find freedom and happiness. Instead she finds love, lust, friendship and adventure.
This novel has been on my TR list for forever. When I got my review copy from the publisher, I was overcome with joy. This book doesn't disapppoint. Sappho's journey still reasonates today. The plot was amazing. I sometimes wondered at how mythological it was. The prose was amazing. I loved this book. I highly recommend  it to all readers.
Thank you to the publisher for providing me a review copy.
