Like her mother before her, Jules Calhoon couldn’t wait to escape her small Ohio town. Unlike her mother, though, Jules couldn’t disappear forever. When she’s called back for her grandfather’s funeral, the visit unleashes a flood of memories and starts her on a lonely—and familiar—path.
Her partner, Kelli, feels Jules slipping away but can’t figure out how to pull her back. In desperation, she turns to Jules’s oldest friend—and her ex—Donna. The problem is, Donna never could figure out why her relationship with Jules ended so long ago, and she never stopped loving Jules.
When a lonely, confused teenager reaches out to Jules for help, the past and present are set on a collision course, igniting a chain of events that will leave none of them unscathed.
Serious Awww Factor
This beautifully written story revolves around Jules Calhoon, her partner Kelli, their friends and how she copes with the major stressors in her life. This time it is the death of her Grandfather and very young lesbian trapped in her very small home town just as she had been. The memories she relives threaten to tear her world apart.
There are so many complex sides to Jules. Ms Werlinger gives us a really good feel for all of them and to see what makes her tick. All of the characters seem pretty realistic, some easy to love, some easy to hate and some you just cant be real sure of…
I loved the everyday feel of this tale. These women have real jobs, real joys and real problems. The story is very believable and relatable. The words and the emotions Ms Werlinger wove, encased me in a cocoon of her making and I was unable to see past the drama she was painting. Simply wonderful and I highly recommend it!
