Dalager envisions the relationship between the German-born Stuart Princess Elisabeth of Bohemia, one of Europe's first female philosophers, and French philosopher René Descartes. It is a philosophical novel, and a portrait of both a friendship and an erotic affair. Elisabeth became a passionate and influential woman in Europe in the 17th century, known for her ideas about the importance of free will, having lived from an early age in the open society of the Netherlands because of her family's decisive role in the Thirty Years’ War and the English Civil War.
It is as well a journey to the dramatic Baroque period, to a time where both the universe and mind of man suddenly seemed limitless, and new philosophical theories began to spread. The two lovers and friends share their in-depth explorations of the mind, nature and the infinity of the universe.
