The background story to these photos is very interesting and was one of the reasons I bought this book. The trouble is, there is next to no flesh added to the bare bones of the story.

I bought this as I generally like Kate's work plus I thought it would be sensual. It is not. It is not believable and it's not even interesting. Oh well, you can't win them all !
