This review is from: Call Me Elizabeth: Wife, Mother, Escort (Paperback)
This book left me feeling rather flat. I suppose I have to believe this is a true story but there seem to be so many 'unbelievables' that at times I had my doubts.eg did Paul really never question what she was doing night after night? He is hardly mentioned except to be slated,but she is quite happy to leave 6 children with him while she is working.He couldnt have been that bad. Did she have such high expectations of the men in her life that they felt inadequate?
Some of the story reads like a Mills & Boon novel...6 wonderful children who never seem to want her to stay at home with them,and David who appears like a knight in shining armour on the last page.Wonder what happened to him.
Yes,women have to make sacrifices all the time,especially when money is tight, but usually the first thing to be sacrificed is a high flying lifestyle,something that never seems to occur to this lady.Most women do not take up prostitution.
If anyone is thinking about this line of work there are some handy hints,so for this reason the book is useful. It is not titillating and her experiences are not embellished,but there just seemed an unreal air about the whole thing.
Very easy to read. Make up your own mind
