The Virgin and the Gypsy by D H Lawrence

"She liked the quiet, noiseless clean-cut presence of him."

Who can resist a dangerously hot gypsy? Certainly not Yvette. This slim little volume doesn't deliver anything too exciting. A brief frisson. It is around 100+ pages that amounts to a one night stand. Through in some grumpy relatives and a bit of a disaster for good measure.
Okay, it is well written. Not to give the story away, well maybe a little; those last few words could ring just as true the morning after in today's world.

3 out of 5 innocents don't remain that way.
