If you have ever been in a long distance relationship....and I don't mean within the same country ....you have got to read this book.
Absolutely loved it and a lot of things in it reminded me of some of the feelings I had when I was just aching for my lover so far away.
It made it even more realistic for me because this is before Skype really caught on and supercheap phonecalls happened - I have been through that and having spent a LOT of money on phonecalls I was hella amused by that bit of the novel.
I also really liked that one character was just butch, without further ado - but was also sexually kind of fluid.
That really mirrored my world and made me love the book even more.
And Sile being that femininely described in very little but poignant detail made me really fall in lust with her...apart from the fact that she was written as a very attractive woman to me.
There is just soooo much right with this novel, that I just want to recommend it to all my lesbian literature loving friends, who are sick to their eyeballs with coming out stories.
The only gripes I have with is the backwards and forwards both characters go through repeatedly ..ooooh ....and Jael....I coulda kicked her for her behaviour.
