    Summary

    The woman who opens the door is nothing like Kara expected.

    She’s not a housewife. She’s young, probably Kara’s age, and alarmingly pretty. She looks loose, and carefree, and stylish. She looks like a catalog model. No…even better. Those women don’t have half the curves that this woman does, they don’t have her subtle smile or her bright green eyes –

    Bright green eyes that are staring directly at Kara.

    “Can I help you?”

    OR

    Kara is a sexless housewife in 1969, feeling trapped with nowhere to go. But when mysterious, kind-hearted Lena Luthor moves in next door, hosting swinger’s parties but ignoring the men, Kara’s whole world shifts on its axis.

    Summary

    Anne dropped her hands in her lap and leaned back in the chair. Que tu es belle, she murmured.
    Ann could handle compliments in English. But somehow, Anne looking at her like that and speaking to her in a foreign tongue was too much. Ann blushed and looked at the floor, self-consciously.
    Non,” Anne said softly. “Regarde-moi.

    I took the liberty of expanding on one sentence of Anne Lister’s journal, dated April 17 1834: “Twenty minutes dalliance in the midst of dressing.” To be fair, how did either of them ever manage to get dressed?

    Summary

    I took the liberty of expanding on one sentence in Anne and Ann's letter to Anne's Aunt Anne (haha), dated 22 July 1834, written while on their honeymoon in Switzerland and France.
    Ann wrote, "At Mottets we slept between the cows and the hayloft"... and I adapted it.

    Summary

    "It’s definitely the anxiety that’s numbing her all the way to the tips of her fingers, not the ill-advised crush she’s had on professor Lister since she took an elective on queer poetry in her Sophomore year. Ann had been swept away in more ways than one."

    It's Ann Walker's senior year and she is really, desperately crushing on her professor. Guided by her best friends Catherine and Harriet, she endeavors to survive the year, although she makes it harder for herself by propositioning Anne Lister to be her thesis adviser - and she accepts.
