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.

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.
