I'm sorry to say that I got through 37% of the book and could go no further. I can maybe allow for the falling in infatuation-turned-love on the part of Magdalen, but blatantly throwing herself at Guy while being married, then while pregnant with her husband's child, and immediately after her miscarriage is simply unexcusable. Love does not excuse all. I very much doubt her husband would be so understanding, despite their arranged marriage. If the roles were reversed, Magdalen herself being so proud and headstrong would certainly not look the other way. I simply cannot stomache adultery all in the name of love. If one can cheat on another, what's to stop them from 'falling in love' with someone else and cheat on you?
