This book dates originally from 1953, at a time when its content would have prevented its publication in an easily accessible form. Use of the word `family' in the erotic literature context tends to suggest scenarios in which activity transcends normally acceptable behaviour, and this book is no exception. It concerns a widower paterfamilias, a lawyer, and his son and daughter, for whom he has engaged a strict governess. Certain unfortunate circumstances in his own early life have left him with a submissive attraction for this governess, and her rigorous discipline is soon manifested on his own person as well as his offspring. He and she collude in the rarer forms of education of their charges, who prove more than adept pupils in this regard. The daughter, in particular shows admirable zeal in practising the amorous arts, including a parson and a senior judge in her intrigues. The proofreading of the volume leaves a little to be desired, but overall the book is well written and arousing in context.
