WARNING- SOME PEOPLE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO GET PAST THE IDEA OF A 15 YEAR OLD AND A FORTY YEAR OLD FALLING IN LOVE. BUT IF YOU CAN YOU ARE IN FOR A TREAT. THIS NOVEL JUST KEEPS DRAWING YOU INTO THE STORY AND LEADS YOU TO A VERY SATISFYING CONCLUSION. I JUST WISH THAT THE AUTHOR WOULD HAVE CHOSEN DIFFERENT AGES FOR HER LOVERS. BUT THEN THE SUBJECT WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN AS CONTROVERSIAL ESPECIALLY FOR THE TIMES.
