About the Book

"Not noticing my lips on your heart" marks the end of one of the poems found in this sensitive collection of prose and stories written by lesbian women.

Love for all people comes in unlimited shapes and sizes, and lesbian women are no exception. The writers of this collection describe what it is like to be with a woman in all its wonder. They cry, fight, kiss, laugh, and mourn because they love. That is what this anthology is about.

But, the words found in the poems and stories also give voice not only to the joys and ecstasy of lesbian love but also to its disappointments, emptiness, and losses. The women speak of wedding albums that are tucked away when grandma visits. They speak of tragedy and loss and death when an affair is discovered. They also speak of travel, excitement, and passion with those they have met and loved deeply. They are moved to say "this laughter could only come with a woman." Being with another woman is like coming home. These are the voices of those who put words to that feeling.

About the Author

Ann Wells came out of the closet in her late thirties. Her desire to communicate, create, and listen to the stories of other lesbian women also emerged. This anthology represents that emergence.

Ann loves living in the Chicago area with her teenaged daughter and has taught junior high history for twenty years.
