A ground-breaking and moving lesbian novel that was banned in the UK on first publication.
Stephen Gordon was a little girl who always felt different. A talent for sport, a hatred of dresses and a preference for horses and solitude was not considered appropriate for a young lady of the Victorian upper-classes. But when Stephen grows up and falls passionately in love with a woman, her standing in the county and her place at the home she loves become untenable. Stephen must set off to discover whether there is anywhere in the world that will have her.
