I wrote the following review for the Spring 1999 issue of the :

A Woman Determined is a novel exploring relationships and responsibility.

Recommends it for: women's rights activists
lesbian fiction for the thinking person. i love this book so much, i am so impressed by it, i wish everyone in the world read it. no, not everyone: just every woman who works with/for women and thinks she can peg one or the other down. there is no truth in human matters -- it's all very complex, slippery, and fascinating.
