" And he cried, 'Kautilya, darling!'
And she said, 'Matthew, my Man!'
'Your body is Beauty, and Beauty is your Soul, and Soul and Body spell Freedom to my tortured groping life!' he whispered."
That being said, if I had had zero expectations, I may have enjoyed the plot, however predictable it may be.I suggest, if you are going to read this book, do so with a COMPLETE open mind.I know, as for me, I may skip the whole "Mansard" trilogy and instead start on that interesting-looking book about the friendship between DuBois and Robeson.Happy reading!
p.s. Reading this book on the subway always got me some disparaging looks since the title of the book is a little eyebrow-raising with our modern understanding of what a romance novel is.
