it was amazing

Jane Rule is another of my favorite authors. She writes about lesbian characters not because they are lesbians and not making a big deal of it, just as human beings. This one is a tour de force. An older man who reconnects with his lesbian twin sister after 40 years of estrangement. The sister has a long time partner with some unspecified dementia similar to Alzheimers. The book is tender, moving, a little sad, but not grim. It is the relationships they all have and how they all cope with the dementia. The partner is a very sympathetic character, still a witty and lively companion, not just someone with a disability.
