Seventeen, fashion-obsessed, and gay, Abby Ives has always been content playing the sidekick in other people's lives.

When she lands an internship at her favorite boutique, she's thrilled to take a step toward her dream career. Then she falls for her fellow intern, Jordi Perez. Hard.

Conventional wisdom holds that same-sex marriage is a purely modern innovation, a concept born of an overtly modern lifestyle that was unheard of in 19th-century America. But as Rachel Hope Cleves demonstrates in this eye-opening book, same-sex marriage is hardly new. Born in 1777, Charity Bryant was raised in Massachusetts. A brilliant and strong-willed woman with a clear attraction for her own sex, Charity found herself banished from her family home at age 20.

Books about the history of love between women are very important to me. This one did not disappoint! I did not know about this couple prior to reading this book and I appreciate the in depth details.
