Description: This monthís selection is The Spy by Paulo Coelho.

Paulo Coehlo, best-selling author of The Alchemist and Adultery, brings to life one of historyís most enigmatic women: Mata Hari. Her only crime was to be an independent woman. When Mata Hari arrived in Paris she was penniless. Within months she was the most celebrated woman in the city. As a dancer, she shocked and delighted audiences; as a courtesan, she bewitched the eraís richest and most powerful men. But as paranoia consumed a country at war, Mata Hariís lifestyle brought her under suspicion. In 1917, she was arrested in her hotel room on the Champs Elysees, and accused of espionage. Told in Mata Hariís voice through her final letter, The Spy is the unforgettable story of a woman who dared. (From www.goodreads.com)
