Peyton and Elena are, on the surface, diametrically opposed - one, a well-known lesbian writer, the other a mother and wife of a pastor - but when their paths cross, several times over, they feel compelled to connect. What begins as friendship quickly blossoms into something deeper. Peyton tries to extricate herself before her heart wants what it can't have. Elena can't imagine not having Peyton in her life. And despite the fact that she has never even considered kissing a woman, Elena is overwhelmed with a desire to do just that. Despite Peyton's reservations, Elena pushes the relationship into a full-blown affair. The two women fall deeply in love, both keenly aware a future together might be little more than a dream. Written by Jane Clark

This is the movie of my life
11 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Except for the very end, this is the story of my life. This story is very touching and accurately conveys all the emotion we felt as we lived it. As a lesbian falling in love with a married straight woman was the scariest thing I've ever done. I didn't mean for it to happen, but I had to follow my heart as Peyton followed hers.

The "love guru" was a little corny at times, but it allowed us to see other excerpts of love. Love truly comes in all shapes and sizes. I still have a hard time seeing him with that business tycoon, but who am I to judge. The emotion was suffocating, but most people can't understand that until they have lived it.

...And the best part is we are still madly, passionately, and totally in love even after 15 years...yes, love does conquer all.
