LADY GODIVA AND MASTER TOM

Freudian approach to a period novel, as Lady Godiva is portrayed here as a beautiful, spoiled and malicious woman, and her well-publicized ride made a her own insistence, to humilate her husband and satisfy her exhibitionist tendencies. The elaborate preparation of Godiva for her ride, her fantasies and sensual pleasure during its course, erotically told, with minute analysis of the character and motives of Godiva, of her husband Leofric and his Jewish counselor Ezra, make this novel unique in the current flood of historical novels. Rentals-yes; public libraries, watch out.
