"Each essay gives the reader a different glimpse into the agony and joy of a woman discovering and accepting her own desire." --Rebecca Snow, Plenitude Magazine--Rebecca Snow
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--Karen McClintock
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--Samantha Waltz
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--Victoria Zackheim
Greetings from Janeland, like its predecessor, is full of wonderfully affirmative stories for any queer woman who's felt at odds with typical definitions of queer sexuality or coming out narratives. -- Autostraddle--Autostraddle
The entire collection of Greetings from Janeland is exceptional and is so wonderfully done that once you start reading it you won't be able to put it down. I would recommend this book to anyone, regardless of their sexual identity, and believe that it is an important work that shows how no matter what your journey, you will eventually find yourself. --Katherine, www.thenerdygirlexpress, December 13, 2017--Katherine
"A great resource for women considering leaving a man to pursue a more authentic life. . . thoroughly enjoyable for anyone interested in later-in-life coming out stories." --GLBT Reviews--Rebecca Snow "GBLT Reviews"
