Description

Critically-acclaimed author Sylvia Brownrigg shares her evocative new novel, Pages for Her. Pages for Her is the story of two women, Flannery and Anne, each at a personal turning point, and the circumstances that lead to their reunion. Twenty years after their brief but passionate affair, chronicled in Brownrigg's earlier novel Pages for You, Flannery has the chance once again to meet Anne, who opened young Flannery up to the possibility of love--then left her heartbroken.
Having long ago put their love behind them, they live now on opposite coasts. Anne has been in a deep, childless partnership with a fellow scholar Jasper, who recently left her. Flannery, to her own surprise, married a charismatic artist named Charles, with whom she has a young daughter. Submerged by her husband's demands and personality and her adjustment to motherhood, Flannery has lost sight of her self and her work. When the two women meet at a conference, they find that the passion and understanding between them has endured, though it has been hidden. In rediscovering each other, they are able to rediscover themselves.
Pages for Her is an exhilarating, passionate work that explores marriage, sexuality, and the transformative power of love over time.
