À propos

''At that time I could not imagine what would become of me, and I didn''t care. It was not judgement day, but another morning'' This is the story of Jeanette, adopted and brought up by working-class evangelists in the North of England to be one of God''s elect. Passionate, headstrong and shielded by her mother''s grand disapproval of a sinful world, she seems destined for life as a missionary. And then she meets Melanie. At sixteen, Jeanette faces a world of uncertainty as she breaks from the church and her community for the young woman she loves. Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit is a warm, witty and daring novel that gives voice to irrepressible desire. Meet ten of literature''s most iconic heroines, jacketed in bold portraits by female photographers from around the world.
