Publisher's Summary

Northern England 1979 - Social worker Elizabeth has finally plucked up the courage to end 14 years of unhappy marriage. Lost and lonely, she buries herself in work to keep her emptiness at bay. Then an unexpected phone call brings troubled teenager Jan to her door and Elizabeth shocks her friends and family by taking the traumatized young woman into her home as a lodger.
For Jan, Elizabeth is always bound to be more than just a landlady. Gentle, reserved, and quietly attractive, she has all the qualities guaranteed to make Jan love her. But Jan is still struggling to make sense of her devastating affair with a very different older woman. And in a world where love between women is still taboo, the frightened young lesbian does all she can to keep her feelings hidden. As the friendship between the two women deepens, long buried secrets are exposed and family tensions begin to escalate. As both women are forced to confront their demons, they make choices that will change their lives and the lives of the people around them forever.
Dealing with issues of love, betrayal, and abuse, and packed with memorable characters and wry humour, Boundaries immediately shot into the best-selling ranks for lesbian romance and lesbian fiction at the UK's independent book stores when it was first released in 1994. The book's popularity has continued on Amazon, where it was re-released in 2013.

I go through audio books like a bag of jellybeans. One right after the other. 90% of them in the lesbian fiction genres. This book was so moving I forgot it was fiction for a second. I am not a literary critic by any means and I very rarely write reviews but this story was too good for me not to say so. If you are a fan of lesbian fiction and like a good romance I can not recommend this book more. The performance was wonderful. Thank you for giving the lesbian fiction genres this gem!

Enjoyable romance from Across the Pond.

Would you consider the audio edition of Boundaries: A Lesbian Romance to be better than the print version?

Did not read the print version.

What does Jan Cramer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It took awhile for these American ears to get used to the British accent, but after just a few minutes of listening, everything was fine. There were a couple short sections where the sound levels changed, but not a big problem.

Any additional comments?

I just wish the story had continued a bit longer, to share the experience of Elizabeth and Jan finally getting together, since we had shared all their other, more challenging experiences that had kept them apart.

A very unusual love story.

I've never read a love story like this. It's about a relationship between an older woman and a much younger one. The story is firmly grounded in reality and feels very real. It's in first person and the viewpoint switches between the two women easily.
It's nice, romantic, well-written, and well-narrated. It‘s an all around good read.

Love shouldn't have any boundaries and age is just a number, good ending. Well written and well narrated. Humorous in parts, sad in others.
