Summary

> Brownrigg’s fiction has been on The New York Times notable fiction lists and Los Angeles Times books of the year.
Pages for Her is the story of two women, Flannery and Anne, each at a personal turning point, and the circumstances that lead to their reunion. Twenty years after their brief but passionate affair, chronicled in Brownrigg’s earlier novel Pages for You, Flannery has the chance once again to meet Anne, who opened young Flannery up to the possibility of love—then left her heartbroken.

Having long ago put their love behind them, they live now on opposite coasts. Anne has been in a deep, childless partnership with a fellow scholar Jasper, who recently left her. Flannery, to her own surprise, married a charismatic artist named Charles, with whom she has a young daughter. Submerged by her husband’s demands and personality and her adjustment to motherhood, Flannery has lost sight of her self and her work. When the two women meet at a conference, they find that the passion and understanding between them has endured, though it has been hidden. In rediscovering each other, they are able to rediscover themselves.

Pages for Her is an exhilarating, passionate work that explores marriage, sexuality, and the transformative power of love over time.

    Their holiday should mean freedom and fun. Murder has other ideas…
    After a murder case ruined their last break away, Oliver and Langham try again by going to the Caribbean. Surely by flying so far from home, they’ll get a few days of peace and quiet where crime doesn’t mar their holiday. Unfortunately, like murder, fate has other ideas…
    They rent an idyllic vacation hut that stands on struts in a turquoise sea—so perfect, so tranquil… Until a body floats past and Langham rushes out to save their life. He’s too late, though, and after going to the police station to give a statement, Langham and Oliver are dragged into the seedy underbelly of the seemingly quiet little town.
    There’s a war going on between two gangs, and with a spirit telling Oliver he must complete a request to save someone else’s life, he and Langham find themselves too close to one gang for comfort. Murder has once again dogged them—but if they’re not careful, it might actually claim them as victims.
    Being kidnapped isn’t their idea of a fun holiday activity, but neither is returning home to discover the nightmare isn’t over after all…

    “A remarkable story.”—Publishers Weekly 
    Set in the nineteenth century, Isabel Miller’s classic lesbian novel traces the relationship between Patience White, an educated painter, and Sarah Dowling, a cross-dressing farmer, whose romantic bond does not sit well with the puritanical New England farming community in which they live. They choose to live together and love each other freely, even though they know of no precedents for their relationship; they must trust their own instincts and see beyond the disdain of their neighbors. Ultimately, they are forced to make life-changing decisions that depend on their courage and their commitment to one another. 
    First self-published in 1969 in an edition of one thousand copies, the author hand-sold the book on New York street corners; it garnered increasing attention to the point of receiving the American Library Association’s first Gay Book Award in 1971. McGraw-Hill’s version of the book a year later brought it to mainstream bookstores across the country. 
    Patience & Sarah is a historical romance whose drama was a touchstone for the burgeoning gay and women’s activism of the late 1960s and early 1970s. It celebrates the joys of an uninhibited love between two strong women with a confident defiance that remains relevant today. 
    This edition features an appendix of supplementary materials about Patience & Sarah and the author, as well as an introduction by Emma Donoghue, the Irish novelist whose numerous books include the contemporary Dublin novels Stirfry and Hood, the latter of which won the ALA’s Gay and Lesbian Book Award in 1995. 
    Little Sister’s Classics is an Arsenal Pulp Press imprint dedicated to reviving lost and out-of-print gay and lesbian classic books, both fiction and nonfiction. The series is produced in conjunction with Little Sister’s Books, the heroic gay Vancouver bookstore well-known for its anti-censorship efforts. 
    Isabel Miller was the author of numerous novels, including two under her real name, Alma Routsong. She died in 1996.
