Book Review: Silent Words, Joan Drury

I don’t normally read this kind of “lesbian fiction,” but I was given the book as a gift for help on a web site so I picked it up for a little light reading, and really enjoyed it. I actually love these glimpses into lesbian lives that are so different from mine, and there’s something refreshing in reading about women who diverge so much from “mainstream womanhood” yet are the norm in the universe of the novel they appear in. The story is about a woman’s journey into her family’s past in order to make sense of some puzzling secrets and features a wonderful character who has redefined her “primary relationships” in a way I can really related to.
