Confined to a relationship with everyone else's ideas of what it means to be a lesbian, a member of AA, and a good, God-fearing citizen, Dawn suddenly finds herself single for the first time in years. She embarks on a quest to satisfy her sexual desires, but finds something far more valuable. Her sober perspective offers readers a raw, unfiltered view from which to follow her often heartbreaking, frequently awkward struggles (and triumphs).
Sprinkled with just the right amount of humor and humility, A Single Year details the difficulties of living outside the lines. With universal themes of acceptance, sexuality, and spirituality, anyone who's ever had that date to remember (that you'd rather forget) is sure to relate to the emotional upheaval that comes with putting yourself out there and going for what you really want.

The story follows Dawn as she navigates the lesbian dating scene after the end of 9 year relationship. She finds herself after being lost emotionally and sexually for a long time. It wasn't exactly what I was hoping for- I was searching for a nice fiction with a lesbian lead that didn't focus on sex. A Single Year reads more like Dawn's autobiography of an important period of her life- with a focus on sex. Despite my bias against sex based writing, I did connect with a few themes kin her writing and maybe I even learned a thing or two. Not a favorite of mine, but it is a decent read to get a feel for big-city LGBT life and to help ease your feelings after a major breakup.
