Grace loves a woman. Annie loves a man. Violet isn't quite sure. But you'll love them all...

Grace has what one might call a 'full and interesting life' which is code for not married and has no kids. Her life is the envy of her straight friends, but all this time she has been waiting in secret for love to hit her so hard that she runs out of breath, like the way a wave in a rough sea bowls you over, slams you into the sand, and nearly drowns you.

When Grace meets a beautiful woman at a party, she falls suddenly and desperately in love. At the same party, lawyer Annie meets the man of her dreams - the only man she's ever met whose table manners are up to her mother's standards. And across the city, Violet, who is afraid of almost everything, is making another discovery of her own: that for the first time in her life she's falling in love with a woman.

A Love Story for Bewildered Girls is a moving and exquisitely funny novel about love, sex and heartbreak.

“I wanted to enjoy it...”

I had high expectations starting this book, but I must admit that my interest flagged somewhere in the middle and I put the book down. However, I am glad that I picked it up again, as I enjoyed the ending, but it was... More

“A fun, light read about some important issues”

For me, a betwixt and between kind of book: a step up from chick-lit but not weighty enough for literary fiction. I like that it takes gay characters and a woman with depression as 'normal', without making a... More
