Well written but I found the action dragged along fairly slowly. Did not complete the whole book. Found it tedious.

Wow what a book! I really enjoyed this book as it was an easy read, but touched on some really fundamental points. For instance, what consititutes a good mother? To what extent should parents be open about nudity? Should parents and children co-sleep? Are the consequences this mother faces worth the individual and sexual awakening she briefly enjoys?
The book certainly makes you think about your personal parenting and in particular your freedoms as an individual vs. a parent.
