A spellbinding, dreamy love story between two young women that unfolds like a series of paintingsI remember when we lay together for the first time and I closed my eyes and felt the crackle of her dark hair between my fingers. She was all warmth and sparking light. When I was with her, my skin sighed that the center of the world was precisely here.Anna is afraid she must be unlovable—until she meets Flynn. Together, the girls swim, eat banana cake, laugh, and love. Some days Flynn is unreachable; other days she's at Anna's door—but when Anna discovers Flynn's secret, she wonders if she knows her at all. This beautifully crafted novel explores the tension between the tender moments that pull people together and the secrets that push them apart.

Their courtship involves impulsive day-trips, clandestine visits to each other's workplaces, numerous nights together (all of the sex happens off-page) and utter devastation on Anna's part when Flynn leaves "to take some time to think about all this."
