One of the best novels to come out of the golden age of lesbian pulps, this 1958 classic returns to delight a new generation of readers.
Phil Carlson's marriage proposal is 18-year-old Paula's ticket out of the tenement and dingy life with her alcoholic father. But the dream dissolves the moment Paula meets Byrne, Phil's wealthy aunt. Byrne, an artist who lives in Greenwich Village, is bewitched by Paula's crush on her and daringly allows it to blossom, despite the dark secret that forever ties her to another woman.

"Recommended for Romantics"
I had finished Carol for the second time and tried quite a few books but none could capture my interest, ridiculous Radclyffe & the like were just so formulaic and tedious.
Then I took a chance on this and immediately was immersed in just what I wanted to hear.
Even though the narrator adopts some strange voices for some of the characters! just accept it if you can for a 5star romance.
Like Carol, written and set in the 50s-these books are much better(for me) because they were trailblazers without whom we would not have the quality of todays contemporary writers in this genre. They had a lot of barriers.
So many books have disappointed me that I regret ever buying, but this, I couldn't resist each next chapter. No regrets on buying, so glad I took the chance.
