Pages for You

An unusual, lyrical love story - beautifully written and thoroughly compelling.

A unformed, innocent student in her first semester at university, Flannery Jansen initially encounters her lover in a local diner. But her tentative overtures - a look, a blush - are dismissed and Flannery retreats, humiliated. Future chance meetings on campus discourage Flannery even more, for Anne Arden is sophisticated and poised; in Flannery's eyes almost impossibly beautiful. Until she realises that Anne feels the same way about her.

'Each day a page, to show you that I am finding a story, the story of how we might have been together, once. Of how we could be'. These pages comprise the story of the beginning, the blossoming, and finally the ending of a young woman's most intense love affair.
