Not what one expects. It is an immensely well researched book -- quoting from literally many hundreds of sources, books, surveys and documentary programmes. Yet it is so constantly darting from one to the next, and then to the next, that (a) one is left bewildered over what exactly one is being told, and (b) one is not even left with a simple paragraph that one can quote as summing up what the author has been trying to put over in a particular chapter Every paragraph one might wish to use needs an explanation of the obscure source from which Sheila is quoting. Oh dear! Something less complex would have been better.
A book for scholars perhaps, giving them a wonderful bibliography of other books to turn to; but distinctly a disappointment for the more general reader who might be seeking examples of why love affairs can go wrong, or how they can succeed against the odds if one or both parties recognises the problems and takes steps to circumvent the pitfalls.
