Without a doubt, the novel "Alma Rose" is the best book I've ever read with a lesbian main character
Although I usually look for fast-action, plot-driven narratives and get easily bored with an author's rumination, I hardly could put this book down. The writing is superb, insightful and often witty with a self-deprecating kind of humor, and the protagonist's colorful and sometimes quirky inner landscape is fascinating. Without a doubt, the novel "Alma Rose" is the best book I've ever read with a lesbian main character. Frankly, I'm biased against the genre, but this book set me, uh, straight. It is a heart-rending book that also makes you think. 13 people found this helpful.

Once Alma Rose appears, though, Pat learns how much she's been missing. Alas, free spirit Alma doesn't stay long. Pat, in a tailspin, comes up with a rather spectacular (and not entirely credible) plan to lure her back, in the process coming out to the town and becoming a more open and spirited person while staying true to her own quiet, steady self. Life-affirming without sentimentality; in spite of the occasional character too good to be real, the portrayal of love and growth rings absolutely true.
A brilliant debut novel filled with memorable characters and the vibrant spirit of the West, Alma Rose will strike a chord in the heart of every reader. Format Paperback 352 pages.
