This is a "don't judge a book by its cover" moment. Simon calls this one of my "sex books" and it looks like the slushiest form of romantic fiction, but is actually a rather sweet little period piece by D.E. Stevenson. It was a complete contrast to the previous book and had a satisfactorily happy ending.
I enjoyed it, but I can tell why she went out of fashion, and why her stuff isn't being reprinted. Shame though.
