About this deal

I felt that there were several points at which the book could have ended and it would have been a brilliant read.

The story covers two timelines that are easy to follow once you get past the first third of the book where the storyline is hard to get into.Overall, it felt great to read a Susan Lewis book as the author had kept me captivated over the years with her compulsive stories. It's not so much the age thing, as there were only 10 years between them, it was the fact he was in a position of authority and trust.

In 1968 we meet a schoolgirl who falls for her music teacher, she persuades her mother to let her have piano lessons so that she can be alone with him. This book is best described as a huge disappointment because it started out with such promise and touched on highly emotive issues that need to be discussed openly but then sadly, dissolved into a ridiculous farce.I think it had a great start and then derailed at some point and I’m not sure what happened from there.

Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook). Upon arriving, Joely discovers that Freda has already begin the memoir, having written the first two chapters already, and it is her firm wish that Joely continue in the vein with which she began.

I found myself completely unsure about what was going to happen next and the author managed to keep me in suspense until the end which I thought was very clever.

But now she's ready to tell the story that has haunted her for forty years - about a 15-year-old girl falling madly in love with her teacher. Joely is locked in a tower and her hair isn’t long enough I assume to do a Rapunzel so who will save her? The characters made increasingly irrational decisions, swept over the actions and consequences of other characters that had life changing results. Anyhoo Joely gets a ride to her new assignment from a friend (Andee), and we get a whole bunch of Andee's backstory for no reason that I can see.There is a small cliffhanger left in, in the closing lines, which I think you’d only realise was a cliffhanger if you’d been paying attention to the details of stories told within the main narrative arch, but it’s very clever. It started so well, The story captivated me, I could not wait to read until about three staves from the end.
