An excerpt from

Pinnacle Lust

I was born a kosher and a graceful Jewish girl in Israel. Still, I was not one of them. I belonged to the other Jews—the secular ones. I had no interest in a religious life and sidestepped the radical Jews—especially those who wrapped themselves with a black capote and put on a Shtreimel, that beaver hat worn by a married Hasidic man.

Sex, Lies, Betrayal And One Woman's Unyielding Faith In Life And Love

“Pinnacle Lust,” the emotionally charged, complex and gripping debut novel by Michelle Dim-St. Pierre, is an emotionally intimate, sensual, and moving novel, about the very nature of human emotion and free will. It’s an unyielding woman’s confession to her daughter of love, lies and betrayal; a masterfully rendered story within a story that leaves the reader stunned, and still hungry for more.

Filled with intimate, sensual and sometimes comical stories of love, lies, deceit and betrayal, “Pinnacle Lust,” charts one woman’s discovery of the depth of her own heart and the inherent danger we face each day in deciding whether or not to trust each other with our hearts and souls. Michelle Dim St-Pierre’s triumphant, daring debut heralds an ambitious talent and welcomes a new voice to contemporary fiction.

“Pinnacle Lust” is truly transcendent and highly recommended.

A Complex Yarn of Passion, Redemption, and a Nation At War

Pinnacle Lust is an unexpected story that tells of a 'kosher good girl' born in Israel who happens to be a secular Jew with no religious interests or desires to be radical. One might expect from the novel's title and cover art that this is to be a story of sexual discovery; but it also is a story of a daughter discovering her mother's deepest secret, which began before Leigh was born and is steeped in stories of relationships that break boundaries, religious roots, and heritage alike.

Yes, readers can expect a lusty story; but that doesn't mean it's packed with steamy sex scenes: it also comes filled with cultural observation, psychological revelations, and accounts of military training discussing the finer lines between bravery and stupidity.

Will her mother's lies repeat in her daughter's life? Will erotic choice translate to the ability to overcome adversity and betrayal to reach new pinnacles of achievement? Be forewarned: there are affairs between professionals, discussions of the positive and negative forces of love, Israeli culture and Jewish religion, and everyday life in an Israeli young woman's world: multifaceted matters that weave a satisfyingly complex yarn of passion, redemption, and exploration against the backdrop of a nation at war.

Author Bio

Michelle Dim-St. Pierre

Michelle Dim-St. Pierre was born in Tel-Aviv, Israel, where she spent more than half of her life before relocating to the United States.

She 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. She is also currently creating a cookbook inspired by the Pinnacle trilogy featuring dishes mentioned in the books. 

Michelle is a world traveler who enjoys cooking epicurean food and creating original recipes.
