Fiction. "After generations of women writers who helped women and men by saying what was wrong, Sharon Doubiago helps us even more by saying what could be right. She is sexual without submission, loving without loss of self, and free without rebellion. With a poet's power and a novelist's scope, she describes new feelings, new possibilities, and a new closeness to the natural world" -Gloria Steinem.
