About this Item

158 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 6.0in. x 0.5in.Born in New York City in 1866, amateur photographer Alice Austen relishes life as she lives and works in Staten Island, New York. But when she meets Gertrude Tate, she finds a love she never thought possible. The two women live together for several decades, and neither is ever romantically linked to anyone else. Yet the true nature of their relationship is only hinted at in Alices photographs. Looking in the Shadows tells the story of what is not visible in Alices pictures-the love and devotion in Alice and Gertrudes hearts. Through letters and interior monologue, author Amy Khoudari reveals the womens devotion. In spite of class and custom obstacles, the couples lifetime commitment to one another intimately shows their deep and lasting love. In time, Alice and Gertrude, two very middle-class women who had been members of New Yorks elite society, succumb to poverty and illness, and are ultimately forced to live apart. But their love endures, tying them to one another in spite of their physical separation. Touching and bittersweet, Looking in the Shadows reveals the power of a once-in-a-lifetime love that defied all convention. This item ships from multiple locations.
