       Additional Information  
      D on Giovanni was once the wealthiest and handsomest young man in Messina. Then a tidal wave changed everything.When a well-dressed stranger offers him a magical purse, he knows he shouldnít take it. Only the devil would offer a deal like this, and only a fool would accept. Don Giovanni is no fool, but he is desperate. And so he takes the bet: he will not bathe for three years, three months, and three days. Beauty is a small price to pay for worldly wealth, isnít it? Unless he loses the wageróand with it his soul. Set against the stunning backdrop of ancient Sicily,Donna Jo Napoliís new novel is a powerful tale about discovering what truly matters most.
