In the beginning of this story Ms. Hutcheson command of the Tarot is quite obvious. Even if you don’t know the cards she does a good job using them to help set the stage for the passions that are expressed. She also reveals how a reading can be informative without disclosing the actual future that will occur. That is something most people do not understand.
Quickly she disrobes our inhibitions and takes us into our secret passions. Her imagery is provocative without being cheap or crass. You are filled with sweet visions of sex yet you also come to know the people in the story as complex and real.
I feel Thea does an excellent job of showing us the relationship between sex and love and the feelings that are brewed when they are joined together. The relationship between sex and pain is even more mysterious but in this work we begin to understand it rather than judge it because of the passion with which Thea Writes.
This is erotica not pornography. Enjoy it with someone if you can.
