A look at two women and what they suffered by loving each other in a time when it was almost certain destruction to one’s life to do so. The hiding and schemes they came up with to protect each other were fairly ingenious, but the viciousness of many of the townswomen all but destroyed them. But there is also some tenderness by those who learn to understand them, and the incredible kindness of Mildred, herself, despite all she endures.

What a marvelous riveting read! The story really grabs the reader. I found myself expecting the worst for Mildred and Edra and actually dreading the ending. I’ll say no more as I don’t want to spoil it for others like myself who have never been familiar with the history behind the story. It’s not the kind of thing I normally read and I absolutely loved it!
