Cannot get over this book. Written in a beautiful way of both feminism and lesbianism that isn't clique, just a warm friendship and caring for one another.

Really refreshing historical fiction with a modern feel - our protagonist is a feminist and environmentalist. A really sweet romance + coming of age story. Recommended for 1920s fans.
