I don't know that lesbians growing up in the 1990's will understand this book, but those of us who grew up in the 1950's and 1960's most certainly will.

I have read all of Ann Bannon's books.

I found "Journey to a Woman" to be excellent.

It tells the story of tormented Beth, who turned away from her female lover, Laura, when the two of them were in college together. Beth chose instead to marry.

Now Beth, unsuited to the life of wife and mother of two young children, feels the misery of her choice.

She begins to dream of Laura. She begins to long again to have a woman in her life to love.

In her quest for lesbian love she becomes involved with Vega, a beautiful, sophisticated, many times married woman. It turns out the unstable Vega has a secret that makes a relationship with her a vast disappointment for Beth.

Beth yearns anew for Laura, and sets out on a quest to find her. She finds many surprises along the way, and eventually happiness.

Although the characters certainly are not into "Gay Pride", the book is very realistic in it's portrayal of what life was like for lesbians before Stonewall.

It's really a great ending to a fiction. Beth search for Laura having her meet Beebo and falling in love with her in the process. I just wish there still a continuation to this book about Beebo and Beth's relationship.

I really enjoyed the other Beebo Brinker books, but the library didn't have this one. I think that the reason it wasn't in the library was that it just wasn't as good as the others.

I found myself questioning whether such a character could
actually exist in the real world. The main character had
such extreme shifts in mood, thought processes, concerns,
and morality that she seemed better suited for an institution.
And in the end, you are expected to believe that she will live
happily ever after.
