Read in January, 2011

Two protagonists that it is impossible not to love--a cosmoplitan Irish/Indian air hostess and a rural Canadian who runs a one room museum--live in a twilight world that doesn't really exist, an altered reality in which two women falling in love face only the difficulties that a heterosexual couple would have to deal with, in this case distance, wildly different backgrounds, the baggage of past relationships and the fear of commitment to a new one. Their budding love affair is completely accepted by everyone--friends, family, ex-lovers, people who barely know them, even strangers on the street.

Donoghue created this world in order to sweep away all the societal pressures that hound gay couples so she can tell a touching and delightful love story of two people who can't live without each other and who struggle to adapt so they can be together.
