Hauntingly written beautiful story. The main character, who remains unnamed throughout the novel, speaks candidly and openly about being an unfulfilled wife and a "teacher" of sorts to her new lover. The ending is so abrupt that it will leave you dying to know what happened.

Unique, for certain - it took me a little while to get used to the writing style.
The story is very honest and raw, sexually explicit (obviously), sad.
Not exactly a feel-good kind of book but it's definitely interesting...and will likely strike a chord with many married women.

A woman disappears, leaving behind an incendiary diary chronicling a journey of sexual awakening. To all who knew her, she was the good wife: happy, devoted, content. But the diary reveals a secret self, one who's discovered that her new marriage contains mysteries of its own. She has discovered a forgotten Elizabethan manuscript that dares to speak of what women truly desire, and inspired by its revelations, she tastes for the first time the intoxicating power of knowing what she wants and how to get it. The question is: How long can she sustain a perilous double life?

This is a book that started off a bit difficult. However, it didn't take long to 'feel' the character and to start understanding where she was coming from.

This is a book where some will just read it and think "ok", but this is also a book where someone will read it and think "wow...this is, or could be, me".

A private journal approach to a woman's seduction. Some of it sweet, some of it dangerous. A more literary take on erotica.
