The first few chapters seem sedate, almost contemplative read to begin with, when Justine and Alex part, amicably but finally. And then a very modern-day romance blossoms, one made over the internet, Molly in New York, and Justine, in Adelaide, Australia. The mood changes. This is a passionate book of love and romance, not boy/girl, but girl/girl and then another girl. The writing takes the reader from erotic encounters to heartbreak and despair. It's apparent that for the heroine, Justine, finding that she prefers women to men is not the ending of problems, but it is the opening of a new door. One feels that her life will be more full than it ever was before she left her home.
