I've got Doris Grumbach's The Ladies, a novel about the Ladies of Llangollen.

Wikipedia sez:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ladies_of_Llangollen

The Ladies of Llangollen were two upper-class Anglo-Irish women whose relationship scandalised and fascinated their contemporaries. The Ladies are interesting today as an example of historical lesbianism or romantic friendship.

I'll send 3 books for 2 credits to anyone who orders it :)
