Ramona Drottoveo, an albino, is a chambermaid at a lush Italian estate. Distinguished by the intoxicating scent she exudes, Ramona is despised by all women and adored by all men, whose inexhaustible lust she eagerly satisfies. Life changes when her husband dies after discovering his bride with another man on their wedding night. Blamed for his death, Ramona and her lover are exiled to the neighboring city of Naples. There, Ramona's life is transformed once again by the birth of a daughter, Blandina, who "steals" her mother's scent. No longer able to seduce men into blind submission, Ramona humbly returns to the estate to an unexpected welcome -- and revenge.

A hilarious and naughty celebration of the senses and the strange places they can lead us, Nectar explores the mystery of sexual attraction and the frivolous nature of divine justice.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting, but still good This novel was definitely an interesting read. Basically, (without giving away the entire book) you follow the life of a very conceited, self-obsessed, albino woman. Although all of the Italian names can be rather confusing, I still give it a good rating because of the dry humour in visualizing all of the silly things this italian girl can get herself into.
