"Val is emotionally bumptious, sexually voracious, intellectually undisciplined & lesbian. Emily is emotionally circumspect, sexually controlled, intellectually rigorous & straight. The epistolary tale Jacobsen braids through their lives is deeply sensuous, profoundly wise, vastly entertaining, and painfully real. Val's lovers die or disappear. Emily's troubled past haunts her. Whatever is happening in their lives, their resilient friendship binds them across time and distance--and eventually, in a perfect ending to a special novel, brings them together again." - Richard LaBonte, SF Bay Times
"AN EPIC NOVEL OF THE VERY BEST KIND." -- Carla Tomaso, Author of Maryfield Academy
"This is A LOVELY BOOK THAT STAYS WITH THE READER LONG AFTER ONE HAS FINISHED IT." -- Christopher Bram, Author of Gods and Monsters and Lives of Circus Animals
