it was amazing
bookshelves: lesbian
Read in January, 2009

A very moving account of the life of a woman who from an early age realised she was 'different' in her sexual orientation. The book is semi-autobiographical with some passsages, such a description of the author's experience of ambulance driving in the north of France during WW1 which was apparently composed from first hand accounts.
it seems a very honest book, with no pretensions. There is no explicit sex, only the famous line 'that night they were not divided' to note the first lesbian love-making in which the author engaged.
