Last month I brought you Ariadne's Diary. This month we've got Bridie, and the books couldn't more different.
Ariadne's Diary is pretty porny, about a young woman crushing on an older one. Bridie's Diary is about an older woman crushing on a younger one. So maybe they're not so different after all. I guess the difference is tone rather than content. Both contain plenty of sex, but Ariadne strikes me as more smutty, whereas Bridie is more literary.
Or maybe the tone of both books is exactly the same. Authors are terrible judges of their own books.
All I know is that, at this point in my life (midlife), I identify with Bridie far more than Ariadne.
I'm glad things work out for her. I hope it's not a spoiler to say that her future's looking bright by the end of the book.

Series: The Lesbian Diaries
Bridie never expected to find herself in this position at midlife: leaving her husband and moving to the ends of the earth, purchasing her childhood home, falling in love with her tenant...
Ness is everything Bridie is not. She’s young and bold and artsy and trans. Bridie can’t fight the attraction. It’s addictive. It’s overwhelming.
But when Bridie’s best friend shows up to remind her what life was like when they were lovers, she’s torn between fresh possibilities and familiar passions. Will Bridie choose the old or the new? Or will life choose for her?
Lesbian fiction from award-winning queer Canadian author Giselle Renarde.
