4.0 von 5 Sternen An old favorite 14. September 2011
Von Astrid TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Kindle Edition
Some years ago I read "The Grass Widow" for the first time. Somehow the book got lost (probably because someone borrowed it and never gave it back) and I forgot all about it.
Now, thanks to e-books I have another copy of the book and enjoyed reading it for the second time.

Set in the 1870s in rural Kansas two distant cousins meet. One of them is a grass widow, pregnant after having been raped and sent away from her family to Kansas. The other a young woman who tries to continue running the farm after her family died. They two women form an unlikely friendship and then fall in love. And what a great love story it is.

Nancy Little's writing is different from that of most modern writers of lesbian fiction. At times there is no driven plot but rather philosophical thoughts implemented by the author - something that fits the story and its characters.

I'm happy that this book has found another way into my life and this time it is going to stay. No matter what.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Entertaining western 28. Juli 2011
Von Sandra
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Pregnant Aidan Blackstone is sent west by her uncaring family. They want her to live with a distant cousin to save the family's reputation.

When she arrives, she finds out that her cousin, the cousin's husband, and their children died of influenza. The only survivor is Joss, their daughter, who has been raised like a son.

The novel shows the hardship of farm life in the 1870s.

It's a good read with likable characters, but a few of the events in the plot seemed too construed and come out of nowhere. Still, it's entertaining for a few hours of reading.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Western novel with female characters 20. August 2010
One of my favourite Western novels catches the times and mores, the hardships of living on a farm very well.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Intelligent, Warm, Spellbinding 19. Januar 2002
Von Janet Kreger - Veröffentlicht auf
Grass Widow is a wonderful lesbian romance novel, set in the 1870s in an unforgiving rural Kansas, and peopled by independent and tenaciously loving women. Nanci Little has done a superb job in capturing the harshness and pleasures of everyday life back then and the political issues of the day. What impressed me the most, and added greatly to the novel's interest and intelligence, was the thought given to the personalities and emotional development of the principal characters. They have deep flaws, but their essential goodness and willingness to learn and change win out in the end.
Little has written an excellent novel. She captures the nuances of personality, speech and mannerisms as few authors can. And the love scenes will take your breath away.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An extraordinary story of two women in love 13. Februar 1999
Von Carol Mortimer ( - Veröffentlicht auf
Nanci Little's THE GRASS WIDOW is the tenderest of lesbian love stories, set against the harshness of Kansas in the 1870s. I cherish this novel, and have read it 4 or 5 times so far. With each visit, I find more to love. // Ms. Little's central characters are a young farmer, Jocelyn (Joss) Bodett, and her distant cousin from Maine, Aidan Blackstone, who comes to live with her. With no precedents for their feelings or their actions, they fall deeply in love. // These are young women of tremendous strength, who must find their own way in a world that challenges them frequently and severely. Yet they triumph with a resounding clarity of will, perseverence, and love. Through the strength of their love, they overcome both their harsh environment and their society's conventions and restrictions.// This book is reminiscent of the wonderful PATIENCE AND SARAH by Isabel Miller. If there is any justice in the world, it will become as beloved in the lesbian community as P&S, for it provides an even clearer look into another time and place, and its characters are even more wonderfully drawn. // This is an exquisite novel that is most definitely NOT to be missed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Incredible 2. August 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
A wonderful story that defines great literature. Ms. Little has captured real life in the 1800's with the hardships and heartaches of genuine characters. Her use of period language and phrasing makes this a 'Steinbeck' type read. The two women in this novel are captivating and realistic. I can't say enough about this story. I felt like I was there with them. I am now going on my 7th reading.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gripping historical fiction with compelling characters 6. November 1998
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Nanci Little is a writer of extraordinary skill. She is able to create a believable world, in this case the American West of the last century, and people it with characters about whom we care deeply. The Grass Widow is also a real page turner, one in which what happens next is (almost) as important to whom that what happens.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Compelling,historically accurate - worth reading over & over 2. Februar 1998
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Grass Widow is a compelling novel, with complex characters, historically accurate with a strong sense of place. The romance, while central to the plot, is only part of the charm and depth of this work. I have found myself rereading Grass Widow, something I rarely do, and find new images and details each time. Poignant. There's room for a sequel if Nanci Little is listening!
