I find it difficult to write a review for a book as touching and hopeful as The Winter Loon. Most often it is very painful to look at the history of LGBTQ folks trying to live their lives honestly. Our history has been brutal and uniquely personal in our march towards liberty. The Winter Loon takes a look at the life of a lesbian in the mid1900s; her family, her friends, her loves and her journey to be herself amongst them without apology. The characters are incredibly well written, each of them jumping off the page as fully developed people you can relate to and picture as having a place in your life. The lead character Ruth has many struggles, adversities and tragedies in her life. She is not always able to pull herself out of them on her own but manages with the help of her community to find a hopeful place and a create a life worth living. So often LGBTQ themed historical fiction is tragic and hard to read. It is a breath of fresh air to find a book that, though it has its share of tragedy, carries an air of hope. It is a reminder that community is what carries us through and that all of our participation is vital whether we ever know it or not. Cherry Robinson Psy. D.
