A dream is housed in the dusty, unused storage room above the Tickled Texan, one of Amber, Texas’ two gay bars. Journalist April Sims serves as the reluctant leader in making that dream a reality. Under her guidance an eclectic group of women build a safe place in a community where being lesbian can be dangerous and difficult.
April meets Sophia Mendez, a local attorney, as she seeks legal guidance for members of the group. In meeting with the women of the Ladies’ Room, Sophia finds herself dealing with personal as well as professional issues. When a radical religious group levels an attack on the entire gay community, even to the point of a vigilante attack on the Tickled Texan, the strength and unity of the women of The Ladies’ Room will be tested to the core.
Only time will tell if the beauty of the dream can override the ugliness of a harsh reality.
I’ve never read anything by this author before but I must say I liked it a lot. The characters were lovable from the start. Throughout the book they grew and developed into stronger women. The plot lines were well written, interesting and very enjoyable. This is a book that has earned a place on my re-read list. Very well done. Thank you Ms Peck.
