I had a PDF of this sitting on my PC in the office for the best part of the year and never did get around to reading it. Plugged into my iPad with Beethoven’s 6th in my ears, sitting in comfort on the settee got it read. It’s a well written story about a lesbian relationship, a young woman working in a bookstore who finds that rather than the blonde buying the latest The Year’s Best Lesbian Erotica, it is the woman behind her with whom she is to be entwined. It’s a love story for the most part, dealing well with a big event, and finished with a touch of something at the end that I suppose qualifies for inclusion in this anthology, if you’re going to be the broadest of broad ‘fantasy’ church.
