Tessa I'm completely at a loss for words, it's amazingly brilliant. I would have gone into detail how much I love this and prove how objective my critique is, but it still wouldn't do this justice. Nevertheless, I'm at a point where I just let people do their own opinions of this book because I wouldn't cajole them into reading it just to make myself feel good about it. I would like them to have their own perception, which sooner wouldn't just be merely an interpretation, but reading this is truly an EXPERIENCE. Just as the author successfully did which few writers would probably ever do.

I'm very grateful that I've encountered something like this. It is wonderful.

Aphazia DC This book is life-changing for me too. I remember reading it after my gf (now ex) and I broke up and it was cathartic to my healing process. Haha. :) Might I recommend books by Sarah Waters? Her novels are mostly sapphic-tinged, and highly Victorian, if you're into that sort of thing. :)
