About the Book

Eleven Minutes chronicles the story of a young Brazilian woman named Maria. She moves out of her small village to Geneva, Switzerland where she hopes to start her life over. A chance encounter with an Arab man one night earns her thousands of francs. Lured by the prospect of easy money, she takes up prostitution as a profession. Her feelings about ‘true love’ are put to test when she meets Ralf, a man she eventually falls in love with. In her journey of self-discovery, she is forced to choose between continuing with her profession or rising to the occasion and risking everything for the possibility of discovering what love actually means.
