Chapter One

She sat back, Louise Fleming, open into the nothingness of the time period from the doctor's window, important London, musing in the order of her existence up to this point, it was 1945, she was dismayed by her own state of mind but she had eventually put it together, beside a bit of awkwardness. Now she'd have to bowman her male parent.

(Louise was born 1911, but beingness really didn't corner up near her until 1933, when she had polished college, became a registered health care provider (RN), an occupation her father chose for her, Dr. Bruce Fleming, yet he would have preferred she change state a doc like-minded him. She had worked on her post at two London hospitals, and , even nevertheless she liked her work, and was better at it, she was not fully easy next to it, I mean, it is not genuinely what she would have selected had she unnoticed her father's powerfulness. That of course, was one of two contentions, or issues relating her and her father, an internal effort for her, for she adored him dearly, and deeply, whom was nonmoving in old Victorian traditions, and her to some extent a uninhibited female person of the 1920s, the new era, what F. Scott Fitzgerald dubbed it, 'The Jazz Age'.

It was in 1945, WWII had ended, and not moving thing smaller quantity than Doctor Fleming's opinion, and place on how belongings are say to be, were out next to him ((he had not changed)), and when he was next to his daughter, the tussle seemed to emanated finished his animal tissue to the connective tissue of his bones, and to presume of dynamic them would be horrible, unthinkable, mocking.

Louise had one matter beside Dr. David Marshal, in 1937, earlier the war, simply to insight out he was married, and would go subsidise to his wife, one way or another it was a assuagement for her, so she concluded not long after the information. That is when she had met Lisa Morgan, a number of incident in the rash months of 1938, she was research a adult female comrade was considerably more humorous for her, yes, learned, odd as it seemed, it seemed right, in that she had a friend, one she could confer to, when she material dry and dull, and minus words, converse to and not anticipate nix in return; a man would never weigh up that, she finalized. That is when she started to be in contact her first-year book, well, a tiny since that, but when she put much attempt into that is, yet, it would not be over and done with until 1939. Her father told her she was bloodshed her example on such matters, that she should go back to school, insight a husband, have children, so he could have grandchildren, for she was the simply adult female in the family, and get a doctor, it would composition her larger. Her thoughts of teaching were that her sis could do all those holding for him; he didn't requirement to have two daughters good-natured his will.

But as time went on, she was on her ordinal book; she utilised the pen name, Rose Christianson. In 1942, the 2nd photograph album was finished, and yet her male parent didn't know; lonesome that she was writing, as he put it so plainly, for what apology he didn't know, or aid. In a way, Louise was surprised she got two books published, but afterwards it was what she likable to do, and that was genuinely when she started to grill her sex.

But during her time off in spring, of 1938, when Lisa and her went to England's coast, rented a liberty in a guesthouse, climbed the close mountain, together, went scraggy dipping in a close by lake, together, talked for work time on end during the fourteen-night stay, conversation and imbibing and smoky cigarettes, attentive to the piano, and being warmed by the fireplace, holding changed, and everything go questionable, but denaturized still.

During the war age of 1944 to 1945, they both worked at the General Hospital together, she was the commander nurse, tender as she was, and in attendance were nuns, sisters in use. And this day, she stood at the fanlight of the hospital, she had move now to the decision after her tertiary and now in a job on her off book, all in a heterosexual themes and plots, come through to the finality, and veracity of her ordinal content would tip the scales of the times, like-minded it or not, towards her taste. She cloth liberated to do so, yes, a speck panicky yet, but she recognized now she was a lesbian, and by some means would have to obverse up to it, exactly or incorrect to her begetter it didn't entity anymore, she was what she wished-for to be, or what she cloth she had to be, not fully understanding the why of it, or caring, it freshly was.)

Chapter Two

[1946] Louise left the hospice to come across Lisa at the pub, nigh Trafalgar Square, it was 10:00 PM, she was working on her 5th copy (as I have mentioned), "All Her Young Lovers" it was 1946, she and Lisa had purchased a flatboat from quite a lot of of the investment advanced to her on her away upcoming publication. It would land an affair in the hospital, one beside a slant to it, a weak translation to two women falling in love, yes, sympathetic of a appropriation from her own enthusiasm. If she done it wisely, the public would judge it she knew, if not, she'd be pigeonholed as one big-hearted of a writer, and a slender readership, or small-scale one beside the public, and centered toward homosexuality single. This was her thorn in the side, how could she soothe her, and her semipublic at the very time, and be actual to herself and her readers, and how would her male parent nick it, if she was successful, definitely he would find out.

And so Lisa and Louise affected in unneurotic on the Tames River, facing south, and field sport off the boat, and alive in its incommodious station resembling two sardines, but appetite it. She was beautiful sure at this point, she would not return to a heterosexual relationship, yet she questioned herself on this, was she bisexual? She had not subordinate it in every respect out, not until Lisa found a swain that happened to lessen by one day when she was at work, and present they were drinking brew on the upper deck, sector of the boat, happy. He was probably various geezerhood elder than she, and they seemed to cognize all another reasonably well, for single tryst once: perchance they were old friends from the hospital, causal agent that she didn't let somebody know her about, oh well, it was cramps in the stomah when she saw them in cooperation. And desire prevailed, but it was single sagacious thinking, she could not powerfulness Lisa, not close to her male parent hot to do to her, so Louise had to let this, and she saved a medical doctor crony to have forty winks near.

It was maybe on the 6th date, the elder individual of Lisa's proven to compel himself on her, and she hard-pressed him off the craft into the river nonetheless, dripping wet to the edge he was; this all happened when Louise came home, he was determination his way final onto the boat, and verbalise Lisa as he walked on lateral the vessel to the enclosure area, and other Louise, they had at that moment, made up their minds not to trial themselves anymore, it was enough, they were who they were, and didn't poverty to put in the wrong place one different all over short-dated residence pleasures.

But static the father required to know, and it was in that incredibly year, Louise confronted him.

"How was it next to your father?" asked Lisa.

"As expected, not good, not moral at all, he loud and named me a fag, and barrel his head, and stomped his feet, and told me I was active to hell, and that he did not privation me to be segment of his natural life anymore, not that we are noticeably to all other now."

There really wasn't more than much to say, the parent had aforementioned his peace, and so did Louise, yet it stone-broke her bosom that they could not have a girl and begetter relation like she had e'er hopped for, saw that, so many an of her friends had.

And that 1947 came, a bad and apposite yr so for Louise, bad in that her father took ill and died; She was called to his bed side, and for what it was worth, made their peace, but unmoving they were mortified next to each other, even afterwards.

It was this year her new book, became an awarding ahead book, and she accepted $100,000-dollars for the rights to cause it into a movie, even still it would never go previous the thinking stages, she prescriptive the scrutinize. After the taxes, of 40% (some mode of war repossession tax) she was not here near $60,000-dollars, still a stupendous sum for the nowadays. It was a contravene for her and Lisa, they could now determination to wherever they required to, and Louise could create until her suspicion was self-satisfied.

Chapter Three

[1948] Louise and Lisa sold their houseboat, virtually having to impart the big reservoir away, or pay to have it captive and hauled and scrapped at the junkyard, but at the past moment, a nice offering came in, astir $1000-dollars was fine, and they grabbed it, it really was the ending and solitary nice offer, and they caught a boat, piece cases only, a few boxes of books, and orientated for South Africa, Cape Town, facade on the coast, this is where on earth they would in performance. There they purchased a pane of land, 8000-square meters, and built cardinal houses on it, sold-out two, and with what they had not here over, body-build an time lag on theirs.

There was a puzzle though, the two men they went into business concern with who helped form the homes for and next to them, but did not place money, lone event and effort, Tom Gerard, and his brother, Hank, resold the houses, thus, two owners per address. The boob was that they had printed dominance from Louise's attorney, she had given it during the place stages and unnoticed to have a invalidated. There was a tribunal battle, and Louise completed up individual responsible, I speculate causal agency had to be, and she was the solitary one available, sad but true, nation and law lords go after those they can catch, who have money, who have no place to run to. It would lug a few geezerhood to change posture out. And Tom and Hank were no where on earth to be found. And so again, she was robbed legally, onetime by the regime finished taxes, and now by the courts, locution she would have to make good, the funds put behind on purchase the habitation by the 2nd owners, spell different party was lawfully owning it. Had she not agreed to the settlement, she was looking at put inside instance for fraud, but it would be the closing case she of all time detected of the two boys, a cavernous scrape indeed.

It was 1950, when all was set and over, and she had patterned out what to do beside her writings. I mean, she requisite to merchandise her spirit into the books, her way of life, short isolating her national to a corner, as if to say: transport it or start out it. She knew her mode was not all that proper in Europe, specially England, and America in precise. And so she chose to pen roughly speaking the Greeks.

This was her release; she would go the Greek hero, where on earth sex was accepted, as was Plato, and all the very good Greeks heroes. She could rearward the role, her anyone the male, and merged the lifestyle from book to book, purely slightly, until she hit Alexander the Great, location she would outweigh with his bisexual life, for all human beings idolised Alexander, how could they not cognise he was who he was.

And as the age passed she wrote ix books, one after the other, beside cardinal tours of Greece, and reading the vases in the museums to digit out their natural life styles, on a each day justification. She was so obedient at it, maximum readers scheme she to be a man handwriting of the old ancient Greeks, to their dismay, they would insight out, she was a woman. And so the chore went one, and seldom did she travel, with the exception of for acquiring entangled a touch near the issues of South Africa, and a few scattered ones in her preference of sex, she did not variety waves, plus, she lived so far distant from humanity's cosmopolitan's who would ever deem of visiting her: she would not have to punch-up for her lifestyle, a moment ago don't be domineering next to it in her religious text. And it worked.

She died in 1989; one call in from BBC for an interview, one from a mag almost her life, and that was that.
