I found the book to be insightful from both points of view[sadist and masochist]. It was beautifully written. The author must surely know first hand the art it takes to bring one to to such pleasure.I found it to be most stimulating.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I first read this in my late teens, (17? or so) and it summed up so much the essence of what I felt that I couldn't help but enjoy it. The period setting (Victorian England) is extensively portrayed and the story continues from one erotic adventure to another, without becomming dull. I now think about the scenes with the 11 & 15 year old girls with shame (being a father) but I sure enjoyed reading them as a teenager. It is after all erotica, and overall is a great story.
The story begins with a young widow 'capturing' (emotionally only, not physically) a young man and showing him the pleasures of the birch. Many Domination and Submission themes are explored, as well as some S&M. Birching is used extensively, as with most Victorian Period pieces. If the above mentioned themes interest you, it's definantly worth buying...

Format: Mass Market Paperback
A two volume 250 page victorian tale of the experiences of Cecil Pendergast a young Oxford undergraduate who gets an education in the ways of erotic love at it's best.
The alluring widow, Ms Muriel Harcourt (I've seen this name in many of the best of erotic literature through the years... it must have meant soemthing for the victorians ... ) teaches a willling and sufficiently submissive Cecil where real pleasure can be derived and for more than a fleeting moment. She certainly, and the author does complete justice, treats her encounters like a delicious meal to be enjoyed ...
Although I'm definitely not into S&M this book knows where its should start and stop ... what an absolutely masterfully written piece to accomplish that ....
A MUST HAVE for your library ... Dont let the title fool you it is THE BEST ... loved it!

Hello everyone,
I have to say that this is the best SM book I have ever read since the classic "Story of O". Period.
And what's great about it is not just the punishment scenes. Oh, those are very well written. The best abou this book is the characters. They are so well portrayed that you actually feel that you know them.
And you have one character of each kind. The dominant aunt and her companion (the narrator, Cecil), the submissive maid and in the midle of the story come two young teenangels to spend the summer with them.
Two girls. One voluptuous and dazzling but shy and obedient. The other a tomboy, defiant and rebel. They both will learn a lot during their stay. Specially the first one, Gladys. I don't think I ever saw such a beautifully portrayed character in an SM novel. The way she reacts before her first punishment, the way she endures the sufferin and yet submits. It's quite a thrill.
Then there is the submissive maid alway being punished for the smallest fault and accepting it with submission.
Another thrill is to see the love triangle that begins to form in that house, the jealousy and the pain it causes. In the end, when the girls are totally surrendered to their hosts perversions, it's great to see the kind of games they organize ...............
Like I said, it's just terrific. It was the first SM book I read after "The Story of O" and after reading many others, this one still beats all.
Enjoy.
