really liked it
Read from March 24 to 28, 2012

When I first stumbled upon this book I thought it was going to be a cohesive group of short stories. I figured in the end with the author giving her take on the lifestyle of mistresses over the centuries. Though the book didn't carry on that way, I would still say the book is a great read. In every short story I was either introduced to new people of the past or given an unique insight on people that I have some prior knowledge of. A lovely twist and change to my usual historical fiction reads. If you are on the fence, I would suggest it is worth the read.

Brian White I would like a mistress. So these are fictional short stories then? Or they are true anecdotes?

Kristen Roe A mistress, we all should have. They are true stories from the authors research and possibly her take on the events.
