Life changing and life saving book
Karin from Castro Valley
I still remember crying helplessly before I got halfway through Curious Wine. Not because it was sad, but because it was about the power of choosing to be with another woman when every other choice is being offered or demanded from you instead. I saw my lesbian self in a book for the first time.

These many decades later it's possible to find the opening dialogue between all the women in the cabin to be somewhat dated. But these encounters are what open Diana and Lane to each other, and unleash a passionate exploration written so beautifully that it set the standard for what readers expect for decades. I open every book hoping to find even a few paragraphs of the sensuality and authenticity of Curious Wine.

This book saved lives and birthed a lesbian romance movement. It changed my life forever. [Full disclosure, I am an author, I know this author, but every word of this review is written as the reader I was in 1987.]
