reviewed Searching for Spring on
Smoke-free home. Lesbian novel. Back cover says: "Annie Malloy does not know that within her lies a hidden core of pure fury. Nor does she realize the strength she possesses, nor her capacity to act. Annie has accepted her lesbian identity yet cannot seem to assemble the scattered pieces of her life. Then, at a fateful reunion with her four sisters, she discovers that the secret ugliness in her childhood is not confined solely to her. It is in seeking a therapist for one of her nieces that Annie learns she must first examine her own life. And so she becomes embroiled in group therapy with five other incest victims who will not allow her to seal off her fury, who will not allow her to hide anywhere. As Annie unearths her rage, she unleashers her strength. This triumphant, exhilarating, often humorous novel portrays a true hero for our times--a woman who learns to take control of her life and to fight passionately for the survival of her family and her sisters--and most of all, for herself."
