Summary

Annie Crowley was one of eleven children born in the farmhouse at Kilnahone, outside the village of Ballygarvan in the County Cork. Their father died a few weeks after the youngest was born, and the eldest emigrated to Australia not long after. Annie was six at the time, and a pupil at Ballygarvan National School, where the English language and English history were drilled into Irish children. 
Then came the First World War, and the oldest girl went off to become a nurse in England. Annie was needed at home then, to take care of the house and the younger children. She loved the farm work, but soon became a rebel against the English crown, in the fight for independence that began at Easter Week in 1916. 
The struggle ended in a bitter civil war, as diehard Republicans fought the leaders willing to accept an Irish Free State with token allegiance to London. Thousands of veterans of the Irish Republican Army emigrated to America, including her sweetheart Pat Forde from Ballinhassig. Thus Annie came to leave home, never again to see her mother or siblings, or the farm at Kilnahone. 
An enchanting story of girlhood, growth, love, war, and loss. Includes a chapter from Michael's War, Daniel Ford's novel of the IRA.

    “Since you like to scream so much, we are going to nip that in the bud of anyone hearing you.” She said, as she made sure the straps behind my head were tightened. 
     
    Erica then stood up on the bed and positioned herself over my chest. She put her pointy toe of her stiletto heels to my face. I could see the shininess of the stiletto as the light reflected off it. “See how pointy and shiny my stilettos are? I just polished them today just for you, my darling.” She said as she had that wicked grin on her face once again. The one that scared the hell out of me. 
     
    She took her pointy toe and dragged it across my chest, over my stomach and between my legs, then she pulled her leg back and swung her pointy toe forward, kicking me right smack in the middle of my private area! 
     
    “Arghghg!” I gurgled through the ball gag. 
    I had now lost complete control of my body as I felt it giving out at the impact of her pointy toe landing on me.

    Tina went to grab for Sara, but fell to the ground. Her towel came off and she was on her knees reaching for Sara naked. “Please Sara, don’t tell anyone!” She begged.  
     
    Sara stopped and looked down at Tina who had a pleading look on her face. “Please, I can’t get expelled, I just can’t.” She paused and continued, “You can stay here, and I won’t kick you out.”  
     
    Sara looked at Tina and saw her sexy naked body. She got turned on and felt herself getting excited. “Also…”  
     
    “Anything.” Tina interrupted, “I will do anything.” She pleaded. Remembering what her father had told her. She had to graduate Yale before she could have access to her father’s millions. If she got expelled, she would never see one dime of that money. She was desperate. “I will do anything.” She said in a meek voice. “Anything.”  
     
    “From now on, you will do everything I tell you to do for my entertainment and amusement. Do you understand?” She asked Tina.  
     
    “Yes. I will do everything you say.” Tina agreed.

    “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.

    Volume 1:  I felt myself become even more excited. The very idea of this sexy, intelligent, hot woman wanting to do things to me, even though I had no idea of what those things could possibly be. I heard myself blurt out hopefully, “Do you want to do sexual things to me?”  
     
    “Have you ever been spanked, tied up or dominated by another woman before?” Victoria asked.
    
    Volume 2:  I went home and took a long hot bath and prepared myself for her. I wanted my body to be perfect when I undressed this evening. It was as if I was preparing myself for a sacrifice to a goddess. And in a way, I was. 
    With her usual confidence, she walked towards me and started to strip my clothes off. I had surprised my goddess and underneath my coat, I was only wearing pink lace panties and a pink lace bra with matching garters and stockings. The panties and bra had little pink bows on them.
    
    Volume 3: 
     
    I was wearing a mini skirt with a tight blouse, a white lace bra and matching white lace panties.
