Provocative!
19 September 2005 | by carylonlySee all my reviews

It provoked my mind to dig deeper into my being...it prompted me to question my sexuality. As a heterosexual woman, I found it enticing, innocent and tasteful. The time has come to reveal those ambiguous sensations and to revel in the abandonment of the known!

At first I was cautiously watching, but I quickly became enthralled in the exquisite setting. The costumes were incredible, as was the decor. However, what enticed me most was the fact that this is, indeed, a true story! Imagine the era..women couldn't vote! But, yet, they continued to forge their bonds. Silent for years, but witnessed at last. Kudos to Linda for having the courage to realize her dream! BRAVO!
