Mystery Woman Sleuth
Everyone on the William & Mary campus knows Victoria "Vic"
Savedge. The six-foot-tall, raven-haired beauty can hardly
blend into the cobblestones? especially on the arm of
Charly Harrison, the school's football star and son of one
of Virginia's most prominent families.
Now, at the start of her senior year, Vic's future is
mapped out in detail, courtesy of her mother, R.J., and
her aunt Bunny. The plan is simple: Vic will marry Charly
and settle into the role of a well-respected politician's
wife. Though bright and branded by a fiery streak of
independence, Vic hasn't really considered any other
options. Until she meets a woman named Chris.
A transfer from Vermont, Chris is new to Southern mores
and attitudes. Instantly captivated by Vic's beauty and
larger-than-life personality, she finds herself drawn to
the entire quirky but charming Savedge family. But the
young women's friendship is not your basic college-girl
variety. For neither can resist their mutual attraction—an
attraction that erupts into a passion that will forever
change the course of both their lives.
To embrace her true sexuality and sacrifice happiness with
a man whom she truly loves are the wrenching decisions
that Vic must face. It is a struggle at once terrifying
and exhilarating. Just when she makes up her mind, she
discovers that fate has its own surprising plan awaiting
in the wings.
In her inimitable fashion, Rita Mae Brown brings to life
plucky Southern sensibilities and characters grappling
with profound emotional issues. A young woman's sudden,
intense knowledge of herself—and all the conflicts and
physical joys that it entails—are the backbone of this
bold and tender love story.
