Helpful Score: 1


The budding romance and emotional development of the characters unfolds with lush detail. It's sensual without being explicit, and the characters pratically breathe from the pages. They're all engaging -- it's easy to feel the main character's visceral attraction to the gorgeous vitality of her new neighbor, and while despising the brutality of the villain, you feel pity for the terror and confusion that drive him to his deeds. At times the plot development seems a bit pat, but the power of the characters and the vividness of storytelling more than make up for any formulaic aspects of the book. Its status as a classic of lesbian fiction is definitely well-earned.
