An outcast teacher and her former student pursue life and love on the unforgiving frontier in the acclaimed author’s tender Western lesbian romance.
Pennsylvania, 1870s. Schoolteacher Imogen Grelznik is unashamed of who she is, even if she’s had to escape her neighbor’s hateful judgments more than once. When she meets beautiful young Sarah, Imogen encourages her to celebrate her own individual spirit—a spirit that Sarah’s husband does everything in his power to crush.
Determined to forge their own path, Imogen and Sarah strike out for the Nevada frontier, where they are free to live by their own rules—and express their love. In her debut novel, New York Times bestselling author Nevada Barr shares a heart-wrenching tale of two women whose boundless devotion to each other is continually challenged by the forces of 19th century America.
