Transgressions by Sarah Dunant

Elizabeth is a modern woman. Smart. Independent. As sexual as she wants to be–with whomever she wants to be. But a breakup with her academic boyfriend has hit her harder than she cares to admit. And while her latest gig, translating a glitzy Czech thriller into English, offends her literary sensibilities, it arouses others with its steamy scenes of eroticism, violence, submission, and dominance.

Then, when her favorite Van Morrison CD disappears from its rack and her house is inexplicably violated, Elizabeth is afraid she’s starting to lose it–she even consults a local vicar about the possibility of poltergeists.

But what this woman in the lovely Victorian is experiencing is not supernatural. Nor is it madness. For in the dead of night, she will suddenly come face-to-face with her tormentor. She will smell him, she will touch him, and she will make a choice. Then the real haunting will begin.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

I had read THE BIRTH OF VENUS and was hooked into it within pages...the same with this book. I usually stick with historical fiction but flipping through this in the book store I thought that I may like this...and I wasn't disappointed! I read it in 3 days and would have taken less time had I not had to bother wih the REAL world...I can see how some may think this story absurd but I thought it was great a story in a story..I was sad when it ended and I think Sarah Dunant could have ended it in many different ways and I was happy to find out it didn't end the way I thought it would..not quite anyway. It may be a little far fetched but that is what makes reading so much fun isn't it? The ability to lose yourself into other worlds and others lives. I highly recommend this book and Birth of Venus. I will look at what else Dunant has written since these two were so very different yet I was happy with each I would like to find more writings of hers to enjoy.
