That Same Flower: Floria Aemilia's Letter to Saint Augustine (tr)
Farrar Straus & Giroux, 1997

Reviews:

A fictional love letter to St. Augustine from Floria Aemilia, his longtime concubine, by the author of "Sophie's World". A true historical figure, Floria lived with St. Augustine for over a decade, during which time they had a son together. He "renounced" her when he elected to spend the rest of his life abstaining from sensual love. In some sense a feminist missive, this passionate and occasionally erotic letter challenged the Church's view of women and of love. -Amazon.com
