Mark Twain wrote: There is a great difference between feeding parties to wild beasts and stirring up their finer feelings in an inquisition. One is the system of degraded barbarians, the other of enlightened civilized people.

Chronicles the sexual obsession of a middle-aged author renowned for his beautiful, old-fashioned illustrations of children's books. He is captivated by a sixteen-year-old runaway who tells him nothing of her past when she moves into his San Francisco home. When the artist discovers that his mysterious lover is the missing daughter of a famed film star, a scandalous story uncoils.
This is unlike any book I've read by Anne Rice. I didn't want it to end. There's nothing supernatural about the story and the romance is quite believable. And there's actually a plot with some suspense. The characters are well developed and interesting. This is simply a great story read expertly by Ray Foushee.
