A novel about power, sex, and how certain people, with the help of an exceptional woman, find their balance of both in unusual ways.
Our Own Mistress revolves around a young woman who has always struggled with her submissiveness. To put it bluntly, she has always been a doormat. Due to choices she made under duress, she finds herself alone, without work, and a foreigner in London. Then, just when things appear to be at their worst, she is subjected to violence. However, upon surviving this violent encounter she is led to the people who, through some “unusual” means, help her realize her strength. One woman, in particular, takes her in and teaches her what power a woman, or any person, can wield.
