The BookViral Review:
The mystery of Ardie Stallard continues in another superb BDSM offering, ‘Whipping Tom – The Terror Of The Milkmaid’s Bum’. With a tongue-in-cheek, wholly transparent delivery, Stallard mixes saucy desire with delicious irony, as we are taken on a racy journey which has its conception in three historical accounts of an equivalent sin-public non-consensual whipping of the backside! The ingenious plot connects these separate crimes and their resolution seamlessly, through the generations of one family.
Stallard’s wholly believable narrative captures the setting of Epping Forest and London Town perfectly, as does their representation of 18th Century British Society. Irrepressibly entertaining, one can imagine frolics in leafy glades as the protagonists explore the complicated negotiations of sexual desire in the fresh English countryside.
Stallard cleverly draws the line between titillating fun and self-serving and selfish depravity as characters negotiate their own diverse selections of rompish lovemaking, which come upon them wholly by chance, but are settled into unswervingly in their respective relationships, keeping bonds strong and sparks flying deep into middle age.
A stellar cast of characters breaching two generations echoes the innocent and fun element of dominance, while not drowning the cleverly constructed plot or reducing the characters to purely sexual beings. Combining the perspectives of each character, Stallard is true to each, subtly teasing out their personalities through their own words and actions. A refreshing openness explores the multi-faceted attraction of youth, whilst accepting flaws and deviations as part of life and the human psyche.
Particularly engaging are the feisty and fun Mother and daughter duo, Barbra and Margaret (Meg) whose relationship matures and blossoms as the story unfolds, and who unfailingly keep the ardour of their respective beau’s flowing in good measure, despite slightly indiscreet dalliances. The endearing and long-lasting relationship between Barbra and Will is a delight, as they unfailingly find themselves deeply connected both emotionally and sexually despite the ravages of circumstance and age.
Sensual and spicy- an amusing and vastly entertaining novel recommended for the frolicsome and open-minded.
