You make me wish for things I have learned to live without.
The point is, life‘s too short to waste time thinking about how to live it. Best just to do it.
A cozy mystery, with lesbians...and no mystery. Actually, it really was a soft and cozy pallet cleansing romance story, light on the dramatic lesbian angst. It was just 2 middle aged women falling in love over crafting night. Doesn't get much sweeter than that. The way they simply cherish each other is everything!
I loved this book beyond words. It's modern but with a western feel. The images painted of the Kansas landscape, ranch life and a sleepy, gossipy small town grounded me firmly in the story. I could hear the creaking of worn floorboards in the ranch house, hear the engine of a beat up truck, feel the incessant wind against my face, and feel the irritating grit and hay.
This is a beautiful story filled with humor, self discover, fear, and love.
This book made me so happy. I that through all of their challenges and obstacles, not once was there any painful angst caused by one on the other based on insecurity or jealousy or any number of other agonizing "misunderstandings" that we readers are forced to endure. Throughout the story, they influenced and encouraged growth in each other.
The writing is so beautiful. It's clean and crisp, and yet easily plays to all the senses
Elena was not a cuddler in her sleep. Nor did she spoon, Maddie discovered. Oh no. She conquered. When they had been too tired to do anything more beyond crawl under the sheets, Elena took up most of the bed, two-thirds of the pillows, half the blankets, and all of Maddie, like some sort of post-coital corporate takeover.
