This dark, sophisticated novel is a story about what happens when loyalty becomes obsession. Nell Barber, expelled PhD candidate in biological science, is enchanted by Dr. Joan Kallas. Nell’s research is on the detoxification of poisonous plants, and in the midst of a tangle of attractions and ambitions, she fills her apartment with baneful herbs and notebooks detailing painstaking research—all dedicated to Joan. As Nell’s notebooks become a series of love letters to the professor, the web they’ve woven tightens its hold.

Because Sixes tend to prioritize their relationships and look to others for guidance, they might be interested to know about Kaufman’s theory that self-actualization is partly about human connection. You don’t have to sacrifice relationships to follow your purpose. Kaufman draws on Maslow’s famous hierarchy of needs, adding new insights to help you realize your full potential.
Sixes are highly responsible, and truly loyal. They are unwavering friends and staunch defenders of their beliefs. Sixes value support, so they work hard to establish mutual support structures, offering their dependability and affection to any friendship or partnership. By always looking outside of themselves for guidance, however, these types can lose touch with their inner voice of wisdom, choosing to do what is expected of them instead of daring to do what they truly want. The idea of being without support provokes anxiety for Sixes. To alleviate anxiety and fulfill themselves, Sixes need to learn to trust the support system they already have: their inner guidance system.
