*Well written story, but it didn't make much sense to me, other than the title being fitting. Emerging from a dark cell to the light of day. It felt as if I picked up a book and read a chapter from the middle, leaving me to wonder what happened prior to the event and what came after.
Long Live the Queen Better than the first, I felt 'some' emotion in this one.
These stories are all blending into each other. So I am no longer going to rate each one.
Six or so stories in and I am struggling to finish. This now feels like one very drawn out history lesson. Sadly I no longer care what happens to any of the characters, they have all just become one dimensional figures I have no feeling for.
Finally finished all twelve stories, and it was a struggle to do so.
With not being able to connect to the characters, I had to remind myself the story was supposed to have, I quote - A diverse cast of lesbian, bi, and trans women
Clearly the author has done her research, as is transcribed at the end of each short story, but I somehow expected to be pulled into some heart-wrenching tales, not regaled with tale after tale of events that occurred many years ago.
If you want to read an historical account of how people were treated and why some were sent to prison during the 13, 14, 15 hundreds, you will enjoy this compilation of short stories.
Overall rating of three stars, as it was 'okay'.

This is a well-written and researched book; however, it does drag on a bit. You basically get a history lesson throughout time of injustice that happens to lesbians, bi-sexual, and trans women in the course of 12 stories. At the end of each short story, the author gives you a summary of the history behind the story you just read.
I was hoping for a more ‘complete’ story line, instead of a series of several short stories that to me did not tie well together in the end, other than the diversity of sexuality of the characters mentioned.
