Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Entertaining Read This one was very entertaining. It kept me hooked until the end. It deals with adultry in 1900 and the fall out when it happens in 'polite society'. The emotions seen real and you will learn a little about yourself if you try to imagine what it would have been like to be on of the characters involved. A great weekend read.
