On the Verge, Or, The Geography of Yearning
The three daring women of Eric Overmyer's women-centric, 1985 travel fantasy On the Verge; or The Geography of Yearning are never satisfied. They are constantly in pursuit of adventure that takes them far away from their homeland of Victorian America. Intelligent, intrepid, and inquisitive, they long for discovery of that which is greater than their own world while still maintaining some sense of gentlewoman decorum. But all good trips start with a purpose and end in a final destination
