The result is a stunning canvas that exposes the timeless power of human sexuality lurking just behind the facade of Victorian decorum. Forbidden Objects follows the life of Emma, the most illustrious Forster, through a sequence of events that indelibly marks her psyche. Beginning with an unforgettable liaison, Emmas story grows more and more interesting as she bares her passion before those she trusts with her innermost secrets. And then, one drunken evening, an event occurs that will change all of their lives forever.... Emma must eventually flee the tangle of betrayal in which she, her brother, and his wife have become ensnared. And so she seeks solace in the arms of her beloved cousin Darius in Florence. Only then does Emma realize she has come seeking something that she can never have.
