I really enjoy Nevada Barr's books, and enjoy historical fiction. I thought it was interesting to see how these women dealt with the pressures of the time, but felt it was a bit long. It felt very autobiographical, in that there was a lot of details about different periods of their lives and you were led from one event to another, not sure when it was going to end. Although it was slow, I thought it was worth it to get an original story that showed with compassion the lives of two individuals who had to make hard choices to survive in a time not remotely accomodating for gays and lesbians.
