About the Author
The characters are endearing and you simply cannot help engage with the older women who have lived on the land for years; when escape from homophobic patriarchal society seemed the best way to be free. Mel and Erin capture your heart from the first moment, however strung out Erin is from caffeine and the consequent crash.
The romance pulls you in, the lack of angst is a refreshing change, and the will she, won’t she climax worth the wait. It’s a slow sensual tug on your heart, reminding us that not everything that glitters is worth the loss of our souls and social/partner expectation can destroy us. I love many of Gerri Hill’s books for many reasons and this one is right up there for me as an exquisitely gentle balm to the heart.―Lesbian Reading Room --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Gerri Hill has written another beauty of a story, certainly one of her best works.

Fearing for her mental and physical health, Erin’s sister and father insist she takes a three-month sabbatical from the family firm, and book her into a women-only community in a remote area of New Mexico. For the first few days Erin does little more than sleep and eat, but gradually she takes an interest in her host’s lifestyle and, little-by-little, she finds herself beginning to understand Melanie’s self-imposed isolation.
This is a beautifully paced romance, and one that loses nothing in terms of readability by taking its time. It’s a gentle romance that is both captivating and life-affirming. As Erin and Melanie become more comfortable in each-others company, they are both able to reconcile past hurts, set-aside fears about the future, and simply live in the present moment. As with so many of her books, Gerri Hill utterly succeeds in making the natural environment an integral part of the story; from creeks to natural springs, humming birds to coyotes, it’s easy to understand why Erin and Melanie are enchanted and becalmed by their surroundings.
The key to this story though, is that as idyllic as life becomes for Erin and Melanie, they both know it must end when Erin’s sabbatical is over. I have no intention of spoiling the ending, suffice to say this is a book that makes one take a long look at whether what we strive for day-to-day is truly what we want, or need. I found ‘After the Summer Rain’ captivating as I read, and in my thoughts long after I’d reached the ending.
