I just picked this book off the trolley and was surprised to discover it was actually a collection of short stories. More surprises after I started reading.
The stories were about relationships of many kinds; lesbian, trans, domestic violence and anything in between. As someone from the traditional sixties, it was a revealing account of two women, of issues that arise from making a different choice.
I felt the author wanted to share the issues that her path has presented so that people generally could better understand them. It was well done.
