"...if he could have all three of them.... the virgin, the mother & the whore."

This is so much more smutty and exciting than the traditional romance-like cover would have you think. I don't actually know what made me read it, I was in a charity book shop so maybe I thought it was only decent to buy something... either way, I ended up coming home with a novel that looked like it would suit my grandmother more than my dystopian/paranormal-romance/erotica loving self.

I'm glad I didn't pass it

Fantastic sexual drama of the agonies and jealousies of love.

Quotes:

'She hate giving pain but even more she hated people clinging on to her' p. 330

'Perhaps anger would act as an anasthetic' p. 275

'People on the whole did not like Helen which suited her quite well because it meant they left her alone. They sensed her impatience with them, her air of having better things to do with her time'. P. 3

I've been wanting to re-read Andrea Newman for some time and having discovered I'd bought the sequel to this, had to then obtain the first. Dated, but in a good way. i.e. representative of its time (but not of my life at that time!)
A highly entertaining farcical romp of sex and lies and morals.

Emotional rollercoaster. This happens in real life. Take it from the title itself, guilt is, at once, recognized but ignored nonetheless.
