'A refreshingly eclectic and intelligently edited collection of love poems ... what a treat to see work by so many writers who will be unfamiliar to most.' – Gay Times

‘Her introduction, dazzling in its range and scope, places in sharp focus the matrix of women's lives, socially and emotionally, over four centuries...  Her succinct, vivid biographies of the individual poets offer fascinating illustration and amplification of how these women lived.  This outstanding collection showcases the eloquence and passion and yearning of 106 poets.' – San Francisco Examiner
