“These incredible writers describe love’s heartaches and passions in the no-holds-barred language of women’s desire. These stories are both singular and universal, and are poised to transform the world.” —Karen McClintock, My Father's Closet

“This collection of brave, beautiful stories is an engaging, important lifeline for women who are taking on whatever life throws at them in order to live more authentically and passionately.” —Samantha Waltz, Blended: Writers on the Stepfamily Experience

“A moving, revealing, and often funny exploration of women who love women, and a reminder that whether love makes us glow with joy or ache with rejection, we still want more.” —Victoria Zackheim, writer, editor, best-selling anthologist

In an increasingly common phenomenon, women who once identified as straight are leaving men for women--and they have fascinating stories to tell.

In this sequel to Lambda Literary Finalist Dear John, I Love Jane: Women Write About Leaving Men for Women, writers who come from a diverse array of perspectives open up and bare their souls. Essays on subjects such as repercussions, both bad and good; exes, both furious and supportive; bewildered and loyal family and friends; mind-blowing sexual and emotional awakenings; falling in the deepest of love; and finding a sense of community fill the pages of this anthology. One story is as different from the next as one person is from another.

With a foreword by AfterEllen and GO! Magazine editor Trish Bendix, and essays by acclaimed writers including BK Loren, Louise A. Blum, and Leah Lax, relax, sit back and take a journey into Janeland--a very special place where women search for, discover, and live their own personal truths.
