    Description

    "A landmark work of lesbian fiction" and the basis for the acclaimed film Desert Hearts (The New York Times).

    Against the backdrop of Reno, Nevada, in the late 1950s, award-winning author Jane Rule chronicles a love affair between two women.

    When Desert of the Heart opens, Evelyn Hall is on a plane that will take her from her old life in Oakland, California, to Reno, where she plans to divorce her husband of 16 years. A voluntary exile in a brave new world, she meets a woman who will change her life. 

    Fifteen years younger, Ann Childs works as a change apron in a casino. Evelyn is instantly drawn to the fiercely independent Ann, and their friendship soon evolves into a romantic relationship. An English professor who had always led a conventional life, Evelyn suddenly finds all her beliefs about love, morality, and identity called into question. Peopled by a cast of unforgettable characters, this is a novel that dares to ask whether love between two women can last.  

    Contains mature themes.

    Mixed feelings, but worth getting

    I have enjoyed the movie for 30 years and have never read the book, so to be fair, my thoughts on this are probably biased because I was hoping for something more along the lines of the movie. I enjoyed listening to the story because I got to learn how it was really written. At the same time, there were some disappointments that it hadn't been written the way it played out in the movie. This is no fault of the author or narrator. Traci Odom is a fantastic narrator, and I loved When You Find My Body. I was glad to hear her in this book, but am not sure she was the best pick. Not that she didn't do great - I think she did her usual greatness - I'm just not sure her specific style of narrating captured Evelyn and Anne. Perhaps it is just me, wanting to hear the characters the way they were in the movie, rather than the way it was intended. Traci Odom is a terrific narrator, though sometimes she can come off as quickly reading through something rather than capturing the characters in a moment. It's her narrating style, not a fault. I enjoyed her.(Rubyfruit Jungle is another book that has never been narrated and needs to be, and I think Odom would be perfect with her style of narrating)

    If you are a fan of the movie, I highly recommend the audiobook. Overall, it was done very well.
