Summary (From the publisher):

From the publisher:

Early in the nineteenth century, in a puritanical New England town, two women did something unspeakable, something unheard of -- they fell in love with each other. With nothing and no one to guide or support them, Patience and Sarah tried to follow their hearts.

And when family pressures separated them, the two women dreamed of leaving their homes, of being together. Defying society and history, they bought a farm and discovered they could live together, away from a world that had put limits on them and their love.
