Daphne before She Died: The story of a dangerous love affair Kindle Edition

Top Customer Reviews
At times hilarious, at times poignant, but always entertaining, the book, Daphne Before She Died,Daphne before She Died kept us enthralled to the very end. Young illicit love is rarely explored, especially between partners of such disparate ages. Is it possible for a mature woman of 39 to fall in love with a boy of 18 and he to be desperately in love with her? Would an 18 year old girl indulge in a love affair with a schoolboy of 14? Well, the author inspires us to believe in such possibilities as the sexual and emotional vulnerability of young males, especially one who appears to be a 'man of the world', are explored in depth.

Maybe my expectations were too high.
Id hoped for love, romance, lust, passion,to relive those dizzy heights of when you fall in love and perhaps even at least a chapter along the lines of 50 shades of grey !
But interesting as it was, the whole book was about the life inside a boarding school. The formalities & rules, the lessons and extra curricular activities etc - which I understand that the stage needed to be set....for the love affair.... but the "stage setting" was bigger than the love affairs.
The information /story of the affairs was minimal in comparison.
So I was disappointed.
