This is a slice of life - lesbian style. First, Keely had a relationship with Darla and then she had one with Carolyn. She seems to have been involved with everyone. And of course there are Beth and Louise. Romance, drama, sex and tragedy all play a part in this engaging work of fiction about a group of lesbians whose lives are intricately intertwined. Popular in style and content, the novel follows these women as they intersect with one another's lives, sharing happiness, gossip, problems and loss. We see their relationships evolve as they struggle with life, love and ageing, coping with their own community and interacting in the larger world. Like the unfolding of real life, the reader is drawn into a complex network of relationships which see the characters dealing with break-ups, lost loves and serious illness. Impossible to put down.
