Product Description


"This is a pioneering work, one of the few scholarly products that will inform its readers about the day to day lives of lesbian families. Dr. Asten meticulously documented how these families lived. She interpreted the data closely and stayed with what was said and felt by her participants. It is quite clear that she bonded closely with her participants and thus they spoke freely to her, offering her a wealth of information which she has carefully mined. She neither sugar coats the lesbian family relationships nor does she condemn them. She describes them in all their complexity with understanding and care."-Judith Frankel Professor, Educational Studies Program College of Education, University of Cincinnati
