    Regina Gottlieb had been warned about Professor Nicholas Brodeur long before arriving as a graduate student at his prestigious university high on a pastoral hill. He’s said to lie in the dark in his office while undergraduate women read couplets to him. He’s condemned on the walls of the women’s restroom and enjoys films by Roman Polanski. But no one warned Regina about his exceptional physical beauty - or his charismatic, volatile wife.

    Story

    And a good teacher is always a student. However when boundaries are lacking between student and teacher there is certain and immediate upheaval, chaos, risk and enormous pain. It's a dangerous pastime and there are laws prohibiting it. Affairs between students and teachers is real enough in our world and has been for ages.

    Growing up, coming of age is necessary, painful, sometimes without grace. Coming of age is a mixed up mess. Add the student/teacher affair and this mess multiplies tenfold. If there is anything good that comes of it, it's the learning and growth, the should haves and shouldn'ts. But so much risk, betrayal, damage, loss of innocence.

    This book has it all. It felt long however it kept my interest. I found each character real and lovable, with so many flaws yet so convincingly lovable. It all seemed plausible in a fantastic sort of way. I also thought the narrator expressed each character well.
