it was ok

Such a good beginning: the likable protagonist observes her husband embracing another woman, and she takes off into the snowy landscape in her pretty little horsedrawn carriage. (See how engaging the whole scene is... at first?)

And it stays interesting for quite a while-- until we realize... sort of... that she has found herself in some sort of avant garde boarding house where handsome and intelligent young men make cozy love to the female residents. They seem to be simply very obliging fellows(if they were male prostitutes, there would be money changing hands, wouldn't there?)

About midway, nothing about this book mattered to me.
