Read full description of the books The Love of Good Women:From the celebrated author of Patience and Sarah, comes the enchanting story of what happened when Gertrude met Milly. A dutiful wife and mother, Gertrude is convinced she should be grateful to Earl for marrying her and to her children for loving her. But to her confusion, Gertrude also finds herself drawn to Milly, the independent wife of Earl's successful brother and a self-acknowledged lesbian.
In the last years of World War II, and apprehensively Gertrude takes on a wartime factory job. Her new-found independence brings the companionship of co-workers, the beginnings of a real friendship with Milly, and her delighted entry into a world of women and romance she never dreamed existed.
Read information about the authorIsabel Miller was the pen name of Alma Routsong, an American novelist best known for her lesbian fiction. She graduated from Michigan State University in 1949 with a degree in art. Her first two novels (A Gradual Joy and Round Shape) were published under her own name, with the later works under the pen name Isabel Miller — a combination of an anagram of “Lesbia” and her mother’s maiden name.
In 1969, Isabel Miller published her best known book, A Place for Us, printed in an edition of 1,000 copies paid for and sold by the author. With this title, based on a true story of a 19th-century couple from New York state, Miller began her career as lesbian novelist. In 1971, the novel won the first annual Gay Book Award of the American Library Association. Under its later title, Patience and Sarah, Miller’s novel became one of the most cherished lesbian love story of all time.
