Diary of a Provincial Lesbian by V G Lee

Diary of a Provincial Lesbian

V G Lee

An enjoyable and positive read. I was afraid Margaret would turn out to be a bit of a doormat, but there's much more to her than that. It's quite gentle and chatty, no graphic scenes because it's more about emotions and relationships. Full of amusing descriptions of people's quirky characters; Margaret is loyal to a bizarre collection of friends!

Extract

Miriam reports that she is certainly meeting women but no one whom she's really clicked with as yet. Says she is trying to perfect a light, slightly flirtatious note .... Unfortunately has been gently reprimanded by Mrs. Ferguson the manageress, for being over zealous with the younger women customers.
