Editorial Reviews for this title:
A REISSUE OF THIS GROUNDBREAKING AND BESTSELLING LESBIAN FICTION CLASSIC The reissue of Katherine V. Forrest's timeless story of all-out war between a man and a woman for the body and soul of the woman they both desire. In the 1980s, the politics of feminism were just beginning to gain mainstream awareness. In this fast-paced novel, first published in 1986, Lambda Award winner Katherine V. Forrest nurtured a new genre of fiction: the lesbian emergence novel. In AN EMERGENCE OF GREEN, one of the best-selling lesbian novels of all time, an unplanned encounter between trophy wife Carolyn Blake and her new neighbour - tall, athletic artist Val Hunter - leads to a close friendship and deepening emotions that young Carolyn has never known. Carolyn begins to question her attitudes, her life, her marriage, and her sexuality. The two women's intense physical encounters force Carolyn at last to acknowledge her true desires and to rethink her values and her cloistered life. Can Carolyn really give up comfort for unfamiliar territory, stability for fulfilment?
