This was on the library's Overdrive App, and since I like to read about the 's and 's I selected it. Veer far away from this read. It is early erotica and starts off almost innocent enough, but soon gets into some nasty stuff such as rape, incest, and adults with underage kids. I didn't finish this book and I suggest that you don't either.

Note: the Kindle version available free at the Internet Archive is a pretty poor scan, full of typos and formatting errors. It started out interesting. Classically written erotica,who knew? Add to Basket.
