Any ladies out there of a certain age.. don’t you just hate how nearly all the stories are about the youngsters – how everyone assumes we slightly more mature women can’t – don’t – wouldn’t? Well here is a short just for you.
Originally published in 2004 as part of an anthology from Alyson Publications, If Only They Knew is a brilliant example of a master storyteller at work. In a handful of pages Karin Kallmaker gives us the characters, the romance, the back-history and the subtly erotic, as well as the eye rolling naiveté of the youngsters who don’t know that trust and friendship – with a healthy spark – makes for a lifetime of love, laughter and rock-my-world sex.
Brilliant and fun and delightfully well done. Made me smile and dream of such a love.
