Publisher Comments:

Three very different womens stories are told in this work of fiction: each is 41 years old, each has the same birthday, and each has the same birthmark. After years of planning, radical feminist Antonia and her lover—the charismatic and bipolar Josephine—found an independent nation for women on an abandoned oil rig. At first, they thrive; 30 women transform the barren platform into a lush garden, capable of supplying their every need. But the quest for purity supplants radical action, and tears the community apart. Dr. Katherine North is not a sentimental woman, but after she reads that an old lover has died, shes driven to make peace with the woman who still haunts her, the deeply religious and conservative Amanda. Growing up working-class and Catholic, Kitty Trevelyan never considered abortion when she got pregnant at 18. She loves her kids, is finally working on a college degree, and has been happily married for 23 years. Happily enough, until her professor, Faye, asks her for coffee and kisses her. As the parallel lines of the womens lives converge, what connects them is finally revealed.

Synopsis:

One yellow April morning, a 17 year old girl asks herself, “Do I dare to eat a peach?" Three different answers will send her down three very different paths.

That morning is long past. Now she is 41.

Kitty Trevelyan has been happily married 23 years. Happily enough. Until her professor asks her for coffee and kisses her.

Dr. Katherine North's memory of two lovers chafes her like a hair shirt. After reading one has died, she contacts the other—only to discover that she has been renounced for God.

Ántonia searches the sea-horizon every evening. In the last light, she can glimpse it: a feminist Utopia built on an abandoned oil rig, led by her charismatic and bipolar lover. Her lost Eden made by Eves.

Who are we? Who haven't we been? Have we dared? Three of one woman's possible lives are about to collide.
