All (Wo)men Desire To Know is a journey of love and loss that takes a woman to the mysterious world of the Ancient Greek Philosophers. This moving tale of a lover’s grief is a vibrant, poetic, musical portrait of intimacy steeped in Ancient Mysticism. Baldwin’s courageous, relentless heroine tackles life’s sacred questions through dialogues and spiritual practices from the Founders of Western Thought themselves. Inspired by Dr. Raymond Moody’s course, Wisdom Lovers, Baldwin’s debut novel is unique, surprising and uplifting.
