Etched in Shadows

Etched in Shadows - K.G. MacGregor For me, the best thing about this book was the friendship between Johnelle and Alice. Their deep emotional bond transcended marriage. Even if it was entirely platonic, their love for each other was very evident. I love that Alice stayed in Johnelle's life even after she knew she could never have her. It seems to be more reflective of real life than what we normally read in lesfic--the usual trope that if she can't have the love of her life, then she should stay as far away as possible. It shows that women can have meaningful relationships that are just as emotionally satisfying as marriages and raising families. But of course, this being lesfic, Johnelle gets to have her cake and eat it too. :)
