Barbie Burr’s new novel starts with a provocative ad online where a 19-year-old college student offers her virginity in order to finance a year abroad.  She meets with a buyer is willing to pay but she declines the offer.  A year later, the two meet again.  Now, Barbie has a new name and new fame as an author of a book on Catholicism. He’s a Harvard scholar, looking to her book for answers to historic mysteries. 

They are each hungry to know what the other understands about human nature and historic events.  They embark on a whirlwind intellectual tour of the struggles of the religion, the challenges faced by the Plymouth settlers, and the origins of the witch trials in Salem. Their honest conversations about religion, the image of man, Pilgrims and witch trials unfold during auto trips from Plymouth to Salem and other historic places in Massachusetts. As they try and pull from each other the information they need, they struggle with a greater mystery—how can they work together with so much sexual tension?

Libidinous Venture is a human mystery, hard to put down.
