Book Description (from Amazon)
Natalie had to live most of her life under her mothers controlling and influence, except for a brief term at the University which was full of new experiences. She now lives through a tepid marriage with her husband Pet in an upscale suburban neighborhood on a round, boring street. All that comes to an end when Victoria moves in to the neighborhood. Victoria is a beautiful, sophisticated and a wealthy mother of two who is now in a relationship with a jealous and protective man, once her best friend. Victoria’s presence starts shaking up Natalie’s suburban flat-linings and really stirs up foreign feelings in side her. Gradually her fleeting crush develops into something much deeper and more profound, which leads the two women to abandon everything they have come to know and accept for a love and passion so strong that it will change them both to the core.
TO LOVE A WOMAN was a very romantic love story between two women who were trapped in loveless marriages. It was how love could concur all and with patience you really can have the love you have longed for. Be true to yourself.
This was the first gay/lesbian novel I have read and I found myself a little taken back at first but as the story progressed, I truly felt for the Natalie and Victoria. The storyline seemed so real and probably is for most people. The characters were well-developed and I found myself predicting the story, which I must say I was totally wrong. So well done, Fire!
