One of the best novels to come out of the golden age of lesbian pulps, this 1958 classic returns to delight a new generation of readers.
Phil Carlson's marriage proposal is 18-year-old Paula's ticket out of the tenement and dingy life with her alcoholic father. But the dream dissolves the moment Paula meets Byrne, Phil's wealthy aunt. Byrne, an artist who lives in Greenwich Village, is bewitched by Paula's crush on her and daringly allows it to blossom, despite the dark secret that forever ties her to another woman.

It may be old and seem dated, but so many contemporary books are so formulaic they just churn out the same old thing with different names and places, nothing original about them.
But this book was for me a wonderful read, it is well narrated and quite addictive until the last word..
