Description - Patience And Sarah by Isabel Miller

Classic lesbian love story between an educated painter and a cross-dressing farmer. A lesbian historical romance that was a literary touchstone for early 70s gay liberation. Set in the 19th century, Isabel Miller's classic lesbian novel traces the relationship between Patience White, an educated painter, and Sarah Dowling, a cross-dressing farmer, whose romantic bond does not sit well with the puritanical New England farming community in which they live. Ultimately, they are forced to make life-changing decisions that depend on their courage and their commitment to one another. This edition features an appendix of supplementary materials as well as an introduction by Emma Donoghue, whose numerous books include "Stirfry", "Hood and Life Mask", which was shortlisted for a 2005 Lambda Literary Award.
