The Cottage: Finalist, Best Lesbian Dramatic Fiction.
September, 2007: Hankies should be ready when embarking on the exquisite love story of Jill and Carrie as envisioned by Gerri Hill. This is by far Hill's most moving and touching novel in a career that has already impacted readers with her depth and range. If you have not discovered Hill before, I suggest you pick up one of her many wonderful books: Gulf Breeze, for example, is one of my favorites.Just About Write
December, 2008: Even though the direction of the story becomes clear and the reader prays the inevitable won't happen, Gerri Hill succeeds in packing a painful punch. The Cottage is no doubt emotionally wrenching but one worth the tissues and swollen eyes for the life-affirming lesson it teaches.
December, 2007: The Cottage is a well-told story with a very personal feel to it. It can easily be read in one sitting, but the emotions it brings up will probably linger with the reader for a long time. Hill has proven in previous novels that she can write by the formulas so popular in lesbian fiction. This book proves that she can also move outside of the formula to tell a different kind of tale.
