Synopsis from back cover: Written with seductive style and captivating rhythm, MEETING MAGALENE is the basis of Marilyn Freeman’s enchanting lesbian film of the same name. When Sarah’s firm sends her to Washington state, she hooks up with her old friend Jean, a cop wanna-be. Everything is business-as-usual until Sarah meets Jean’s lover, the luscious, offbeat, and fearlessly nontraditional Magdalene. The attraction is instantaneous and intense — a dance with destiny at once disruptive and divine!! An entertaining, insightful storyteller, Freeman brings you a fascinating cast of characters filled with dreams, denials, and desires in the four short novels that complete the book. In The Way of Intimacy explores an ex-nun just three months out of the convent being born-again in the arms of a wildly sensuous woman. . . . . . A high-level government official is forced to choose between the woman she loves and the closeted existence that protects her career in Before Dawn. . . . A group of suburban housewives discover what they really want out of life when Bellevue Housewives unfolds. Have You Got A Problem With That? introduces a mother and daughter struggling to find common ground on the mine-strewn battlefield between family ties and hateful homophobia.
Other Notes: The title story, Meeting Magdalene is the basis of Freeman’s award-winning short film by the same name. Also featured in this collection is In the Way of Intimacy, a new feature film in development.
