By Amazon Customer on Oct. 9 2003
Format: Mass Market Paperback
"In Her Day" is feminism at her worst. The story follows the romantic tryst between Isle, a 20-something activist zealously fighting the cause for women's rights, and Carole, the experienced, 40-something art professor who has figured out how to choose her battles wisely. Together the two argue women's ideologies. That's about it. Add a cast of quirky-but- lackluster characters and you've got a novel doesn't amount to much. There was just too much opinion and not enough emotion. There was nothing human about the characters that made me care about them. Definitely not a good read as I labored through it far longer than I should.

Having read every book Rita Mae Brown has ever published, I have to say that this is still one of my favorites. The characters are, as always, beautifully developed in the ceaselessly witty storyline she is famous for. This is one of the few lesbian romances you can feel good about reading in public and sharing with everybody.

Have you made the acquaintance of Rita Mae Brown yet? Nov. 10 2003
By Peggy Vincent - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Have you made the acquaintance of Rita Mae Brown yet?
In her day is Rita Mae Brown's 2nd novel, and it's a goodie, full of quirky characters, cracking wit, wicked humor - and also full of love for her fellow flawed humans. Brown, for those who don't know, is lesbian, and she's at her best dealing with characters who come up against surprising twists in their own sexual yearnings.
Okay. In Her Day deals with Carole (with an `e'), a cerebral art history professor who is cool, cool, cool until she bangs smack dab into Ilse, a feminist in full battle regalia. Romance, shall we say, ensues. But there's trouble due to the fact that Ilse is significantly younger then Carole, so there are generational issues to resolve in the feminism wars.
...It's great.
Read it.

Great story on the May-December relationship March 5 2006
By Echo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is a bit slow to start, but after you get into the characters, you begin to see a wonderful display of what happens in a May-December relationship (one much older than the other). Throughout the story, you are given equal information about both sides, what they are feeling and how thier totally different lives feed off of each other, that is until they are in the bedroom. That is where they put aside their differences. A good read, a great storyline, and another brilliant book from Rita Mae Brown.
