Rachel York was born in a small town in Texas and educated in the United States and Europe. While at the University of Madrid studying languages and anthropology, she supported herself doing commercials for Spanish television. She currently resides in Los Angeles where she ghostwrites extensively for others. This is her first novel.From Booklist:
Scarlett Faye is precocious from the start, declaring early her intent to escape her poor, drab Pennsylvania hometown. Focused on her distant prize, distrust of closeness marks her relationships, and only when high-school graduation looms can Scarlett yield her heart, soul, and body to the luscious Gina, only to be quickly separated from her. Finally away at college, the poor-but-lovely scholarship student attracts the attentions of roommate Sissy, who is wealthy, cultured, passionately sexual and emotional, and generous. Savvy and pragmatic without being conniving, Scarlett negotiates the horror of Sissy's parents into a full scholarship at a better school in Savannah, the place she chooses for her spiritual home as she hones her writing and dreams of the riches to come. Perhaps her most important writing is her correspondence with Gina, now living in Europe, and eventually love comes full circle in this lesbian coming-of-emotional-age story filled with the poignant, wry, and humorous observations of youth's yearnings, joys, and follies.
