Share A Secret Reviewed looks at the weekly Share A Secret column in Australia's biggest-selling magazine, Woman's Day. We at Gusworld love it, and we hope you will too. We don't give away the plot (that would be unfair and a possible breach of copyright); we just tell you what the headline is and describe the stunning artwork that goes with it.
Circumstance tore the young lovers apart, and she married his brother. Then came a family reunion, and they met again . . .
As if to compensate for this sudden shift, this week's story is the virtual Share A Secret prototype. The storyline might be broadly summed up as "I shagged another family member and got pregnant". Since May, a variant on this story has appeared in 5 out of the 24 featured Share A Secret columns, making it the predominant theme for 1996. But we're not complaining, we love a scandal.
We're also pleased to report that traditional pictorial values have been restored in this week's touching shot of two models on the verge of snogging each other. She is wearing a tasteless dress featuring butterflies with red tonings; he is wearing a red check flannelette shirt. The old order changeth, but some things stay the same.
