4.0 out of 5 stars A compelling read, 14 Jan 2012
This review is from: The Kingdom of Childhood (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Judy is in her forties and is a teacher in the local Waldorf School, run along Rudolf Steiner's principles about the sanctity of childhood and the pollution of the modern commercialised world. Her teenage son Scott is a pupil at the school. When one of Scott's friends, the precocious Zach, makes a pass at her their lives change.

Rebecca Coleman has written a story of sexual obsession. Both Judy and Zach know they are transgressing, and each makes several attempts to bring this relationship to an end. But they also both have mixed feelings and their lust overwhelms their morals and common sense as their paranoia about being discovered escalates.

The author has created a compelling story of teenage and midlife angst in mutual conflict, set against the moral codes of society at large and the values of the Waldorf movement in particular. You'll want to know what fate befalls them, even if you don't like them.
