I fell in love with both Leah and Jean, and I didn't want their story to end. The love scenes were tender, passionate and sexy.
I wished I'd been able to read this book when I was coming out as it deals with parental reactions to sexuality in a realistic way.
An interesting undercurrent of ethics and politics pervades the work without being preachy. Well researched historically without overdoing the detail. Authentic atmosphere and good pace.
The journeys of the other characters, like Amy and Marge give the story a 3-dimensional quality.
A thoroughly good read that I would recommend to anyone who likes a well-told story about the heart.
Not particularly in to this genre but that didn't make any difference. I got straight into the story and couldn't put it down.
Not ashamed to say I shed a tear or two!
Certainly worth a read ... go grab it now.
I don't want to make it sound sappy, because this book smacks you hard where it hurts the most. Really if you can't think straight... this is the book for you, with a reference to Radcliffe Hall, the characters include an adorable old Suffragette Campaigner that broke my heart, a mother from hell, the complexities of coming to terms with who you are and Family expectations. This book takes us on a journey with Leah which most of us know only too well.
But for me it was Jean with her unique people management style and sex appeal that simply leaps from the page. I adored that unique quality of being too sexy for their shirt and not knowing it... Jean is so appealing. I wanted to grab her by the hand and take her home. I loved this book and can't wait for more from Rachel Dax. After The Night
The story encourages us to reflect upon ourselves and our history
An excellent and compassionate story - insightful and gripping. The author takes you on a journey of tears, lust, love and joy. The characters are people that we all know and can relate to, people that grow in our hearts.
A little classic
Chief Officer Jean MacFarlane works at Deepdown Women's Prison. She is loved by the prisoners and most of the staff for her fairness and compassion. But Jean is hiding heartbreak. She has loved and lost her one true love. Leah Webster has just joined the staff as a nurse in the prison hospital. Jean MacFarlane is the person that has to show her around. Within days, of Leah beginning her new job, all hell breaks loose. Jean and Leah find themselves involved in the near death by beating of a young prisoner, Amy Hodgkins, the murder of a much loved elderly prisoner and the homophobic beatings of other prisoners. To top everything, Leah begins to find herself falling in love with Jean. How can this be? Leah is straight and engaged to be married. In a panic Leah does something that will have an outcome on the rest of her life. But before the consequences of her actions become apparent, Leah finds herself more in love with Jean than with anyone else she has ever known. She doesn't even know if Jean is a lesbian or even if she feels the same. Will Leah allow societies prejudices to stop her from finding out?
A thoroughly enjoyable fast paced read that kept me up most of the night. I simply could not stop turning the pages. The author covered some sensitive topics with sympathy and understanding. I loved the characters too. I had never heard of Rachel Dax until a friend recommended her book. I hope to read more from her soon.
I would agree that this novel was a total page turner, I fell completely into the lives of these women and truly felt the emotion coming from the writer. This book talks about real pain, that so many people endure in order to find self acceptance and belief, you sometimes have to break through the discrimination and the fear from others. This story is not just another "lesbian novel" that has been churned out for the thrills, it has strong foundations, backed up by completely believable characters, that pull you in and keep your attention right to the end, focuses on important social and personal issues, and made me laugh and cry whilst reading.
Rachel Dax is a brilliantly talented writer, that will not just scratch the surface to "get the job done" she will tell a story in all its glory and grit. If this is anything to judge her by, then personally I eagerly await her next novel.
Brava, hafna brava.
