How would it be with another woman? There was no guide to it in the magazines, the movies or the girls' talk at school -- nothing but pulp novels filled with vague hints and half-revealed details. Could there really be fulfillment for her in loving a woman? Was it possible? Erika wasn't sure, but after meeting Kate she hoped with all her heart it could be true. A World Without Men is an engrossing novel that tells the love story of Kate and Erika. When they meet, Kate is living in a residential hotel and trying to get her life back together. Haunted by hidden terrors that give her nightmares, and wracked with guilt for something she can't quite remember, Kate welcomes the tenderness and affection offered by Erika. Erika, too, is haunted... haunted by flashbacks of her experiences during World War II. Can love heel these two women and bring peace and joy to their lives? In a novel of need, passion and love, author Valerie Taylor gives us another deeply moving, deeply introspective and intimate novel of lesbian love. A World Without Men tells the story of two young women committed each other and a love they refuse to deny.

"Yes . . . but not for food," Kate whispered, snuggling closer to the warm nakedness that had become so known and so dear during the night. "Oh, Erika," she moaned, feeling the wonderful hands moving, feeling the slow beginning of desire. "Don't stop. Please don't stop." "I won't, darling," Erika breathed, her lips administering tiny kisses, her fingertips exploring and adoring. Kate was lost, separated from everything she had ever known or been before, lost in a need that refused to be denied. She gave way to it with a choked sob. "Let me," she groaned, shaken by the strength of her passion. "It should be for both. Please." "Oh, yes, darling," Erika whispered heatedly. "Yes. . ."
