The Mistress: A Novel Rating – 2.3 our of 5 Stars

Why I liked it
Steel does a good job of describing the mechanics of a relationship between a man who has everything and a woman who is dependent upon him. She show how all consuming that can be. At the same time she sets up the background characters to be full and interesting in their own right, letting us in to their worlds just as much as the main characters.
