Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Backcover:
Sometimes "The One" comes along more than once in a lifetime.
When Lauren Keegan met Cassie Burkett on a Yangtze River cruise, they immediately clicked. Cruise over, they kept in touch, and rapidly became close friends. The following year they're reunited for a visit which ends with a spontaneous kiss that surprises them both. That one kiss destroys their friendship, sending them back to their lives--and their partners--heartsick and remorseful.
Ten years later everything--and nothing--has changed. While the path is now clear for them to reignite the old flame, the time still seems all wrong. Cassie is unable to break through the emotional walls separating her from both her estranged son and her rediscovered love, while Lauren is overcome with revelations that shatter her belief in destiny and romance.
Challenged by the past and besieged in the present, the only thing going for them is the one thing they've denied all these years: love.
----------------------------------------
My review: There are stories that are just right for a few hours of entertainment. I enjoy those. I really do.
And then there are stories like 'Something to believe'. They touch me somewhere deep inside and won't allow me to forget about their characters for a long time.
Robbi Mccoy managed to pull me into the story from page one on.
Faith, Lauren and Cassie are charming, interesting, and witty. Neither of them is the bad girl in this story. They are believable and (in the very best way) ordinary characters. People you'd like to get to know and spend some time with.
On top of everything else, Robbi Mccoy has done her research about China's history and the whole anthropology background. For me this was a big bonus point.
'Something to believe' is a complex story and not the average romance.
It's a beautiful story that I simply loved.

Lauren und Faith sind seit vielen Jahren ein glückliches Paar. Auf einer Kreuzfahrt am Yangtze River treffen sie auf ein anderes lesbisches Pärchen, nämlich Cassie und Jennifer. Während Jennifer, die sich hauptsächlich für Sport interessiert, in diesem Quartett immer etwas außen steht, bildet sich zwischen Lauren und Cassie eine tiefe Freundschaft, die auch nach Rückkehr in die Heimat ihre Fortsetzung findet. Als sich beide immer mehr ineinander verlieben, zieht Lauren einen Schlussstrich. Jahre später, nach Faith Tod, begegnen sie sich durch Zufall wieder...doch Lauren fühlt sich ihrer verstorbenen Partnerin immer noch verpflichtet. Werden die beiden doch noch zusammen finden?

Dies ist eines der besseren Lesbian fiction"-Bücher, denn, man höre und staune, es hat tatsächlich Handlung. Statt aneinander gereihten Sexszenen und schwülstigen Liebesbeteuerungen finden sich hier Erklärungen über China, Totenkulte verschiedener Kulturen (da sich Faith beruflich damit befasst), Landschaftsbeschreibungen, plausible Dialoge und verständliche Verhaltensweisen, und, ganz wichtig: die Geschichte spielt nicht auf einem fernen Planten voller lesbischer Frauen; es kommen durchaus auch heterosexuelle Personen vor.

Die Charaktere sind gut beschrieben, ihre Gedanken verständlich und ihre Handlungen großteils nachvollziehbar. Manches wirkte auf mich ein bißchen schwülstig, wie beispielweise die dramatischen Abschiedsbriefe, die Faith an Freunde, Familie und die besonderen Personen in ihrem Leben schickte, oder auch Laurens unbeirrter Glaube an die reine, unantastbare Liebe (und das, obwohl sie diese Erfahrung mit Cassie machte...), oder das Verstreuen der Asche zum Schluss.

Von Sandra am 28. Juli 2011
Format: Taschenbuch
"Something to Believe" is not the usual lesbian fiction fare.

It's a solid read about two women who are already in relationships with other people when they fall in love with each other.

We meet all four women in chapter one and dip into each of their point of views, which made it a bit hard to keep them all straight in the beginning, but it was still a good read.

If you are interested in traveling, history, and culture, this might be the book for you.

This is a very good book 24. Dezember 2010
Von G. Curtiss - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a very good book. You can't always say that about lesbian fiction - often the writing is mediocre and the story development is superficial - but not this time, this book has some "meat on the bone".

The women in the book aren't perfect. They are not model gorgeous, super rich, famous, or executives running pah-zillion dollar corporations. These were ordinary women dealing with life with as much integrity and honesty as they can muster. As in real life, the characters face tough issues: disappointment, sadness, loss, grief, insecurity, and rejection by their family. The book honestly dealt with lust-vs.-commitment and how do you know when a flirtation "crosses the line" when you're already in a committed relationship.

I haven't read Ms. McCoy's prior works so this book was a nice surprise from a new author (for me). After enjoying this work, I will order prior publications in hopes they're as good as this book. I hope other lesbian authors take a lesson from this book - writing real is real writing.

SOMETHING TO BELIEVE 31. Dezember 2010
Von P. J. Rishard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I have been a fan of Robbi McCoy's books and enjoyed all of them, as I believe she is an exceptionally gifted writer. Her character development, accurate research and knowledge of locales make them immensely interesting. She deserves the awards and accolades she has received. I firmly believe she would excel in any book-writing arena - gay or straight. Talent is talent and no one can take that away.

As I said, I really enjoy all her books and read them in short time, as I cannot wait to see what happens. SOMETHING TO BELIEVE is my favorite as it is beautifully crafted. It begins with hanging coffins in China and ends with a mythical burial ground in the Solomon Islands. In between, we meet flesh and blood folks who are flawed but live life to the fullest and love deeply. Most of us have experienced loss. Many of us no longer have the "love of our life" in our lives, and a few haven't been fortunate enough to find true love again. It is universally identifiable. Empathetically, I could smell and taste all that wonderful food. I could feel and cry with the people I came to care for in this tale. What a satisfying ride!

Kudos Ms. McCoy. Please keep on writing your wonderful, diverse stories. May the writing well never run dry!

This is one of the best written 22. Mai 2011
Von Sage320 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Robbi McCoy has created one of the most appealing characters to come out of lesbian fiction in a book that is about mature relationships and dealing with people honorably. Faith is the partner and lover that every woman hopes to find. She's the friend that everyone wishes they had.

The nice thing about this book is that shows an established relationship the way it ought to be. Faith and Lauren not only experience a profound love, but they respect and complement each other in every way that makes a partnership work. Though they are both tempted, they have the intelligence and maturity to realize that what they have is more important than a momentary indulgence. It's refreshing to see a couple who knows how to behave properly and to set their priorities correctly. Even after Faith is gone, Lauren knows that no other relationship will work until she achieves an appropriate conclusion to the one she had with Faith.

Faith is the character who makes this book work. She establishes the tone of the first part of the book and she's a commanding presence after she departs the story physically. It's her theory of life that makes her stand out: "This is my one shot and I try to make the best of it. Live every day with determination to make it a good one. I'm grateful to be alive, every day." She is not overbearing, but the way she conducts herself is a lesson she teaches by example. She presents an optimistic attitude that is grounded in reality. Faith sets a high standard for anyone to live by, but she represents the kind of person you can trust implicitly and wish you were more like.

Robbie McCoy is establishing herself as one of the finest of the lesbian romance authors by building a body of work that stands above the crowd. Something to Believe is an excellent addition to the list.

It was Different, but good 27. November 2011
Von Roses Are Red - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Honestly, I found the book difficult to get into and stay with. Perhaps I am too used to the standard lesbian romantic fare. But half way through I began to get a sense of the arch of the storyline and stayed with it until the end. I am glad I did. It provoked a lot of emotions and evoked a lot of introspection about fidelity, commitment, and the impermanence of it all. It really was a deep book even if not the most exciting read.
