Patience and Sarah., Isabel Miller, MP3

MODERN & CONTEMPORARY FICTION (POST C 1945). Set in the 19th century, Isabel Miller s classic lesbian novel traces the relationship between Patience White, an educated painter, and Sarah Dowling, a farmer s daughter, whose romantic bond does not sit well with the puritanical New England community in which they live. They choose to live together and love each other freely, even though they know of no precedents for their relationship; they must trust their own instincts and see beyond the disdain of their neighbors. "Patience and Sarah" is a meticulously researched historical novel, originally self-published by the author in 1969. This classic of GLBT literature garnered so much attention that the American Library Association created its first Stonewall Award specifically for it in 1971. Grammy Award-winning narrator Janis Ian and Emmy and Tony Award-winning actress Jean Smart each perform as one of the characters in this dual point-of-view love story
