Dusty's Queen of Hearts Diner
Dusty Reilly fled life on shore for the safety of a Naval career, but there was no escape from women who wanted her - and who made a peacetime military as dangerous as any war. She goes back home to her little factory town and there starts the saga of the diner. Dusty and Elly, both characters from Lynch's novel Toothpick House, along with their blind friend Grace, the fiery old lesbians Gussie and Nan, lively gay Jake and their non-gay co-workers wage the battle of their lives to keep the dream of Dusty's Queen of Hearts Diner thriving in the face of powerful bigotry.
Erotic, dramatic and very real, this is the celebrated first book of The Morton River Trilogy.
