Her mother had told her she was to be married.
Under what "terms".
And so she was.
Her mother had "unwound" as well, had spooled out and revealed to her, a whole skein of relationships - and hierarchies - calmly and openly: her own relationship, now terminated, with the man who was to be her daughter's husband; the requirement of submission; the manner in which her mother - she had lightly referred to it as a kind of balance - had, in-every-way-imaginable, dominated her father; it had sounded like she was going to miss that more than anything.
All of this had been - well, what to call it? - seemingly both functional and, certainly, discrete: invisible, really, until purposefully revealed.
That had been impressive: the secret life of her family.
She didn't complain; she didn't argue; she didn't negotiate - merely observing the facts of what was going on around her, what was happening to her, and...complying.

Not your typical Relationship
This book was different from any other that I have read. With that said the trust required for a relationship like the one depicted in this book to survive let alone thrive is unmeasurable. This book definitely took me out of my comfort zone while simultaneously taking me on a journey of their relationship while outlining the boundaries. A neat story.
