A love that has smoldered for years ignites when two women and one little boy come together in the aftermath of tragedy.
An early morning hotel fire turns out to be anything but routine, and firefighter Reid Webb's best friend and partner, Jimmy Grant, dies. Guilt-ridden and grieving, Reid feels responsible for her partner's young son, Chase. She would do anything for him, even if that means spending far too much time in the company of the woman she's harbored feelings for since high school. Isabel Grant doesn't know anything about raising children. But when she returns to her hometown to assume custody of her orphaned nephew, she gets a crash course. Isabel's struggle to keep her footing in the midst of chaos is further complicated by her growing attraction to Reid, a woman whom Isabel blames for her brother's death.
Lorna has learned the hard way not to trust anyone, particularly penal system virgins like Kellie Holloway, her unrepentant new cellmate. But Kellie's pride and cluelessness guarantee that without help, she won't last long.
Together, Kellie and Lorna navigate through an oppressive, hidden world where lines between right and wrong blur, sexual passion is forbidden but explosive, and love is the biggest risk of all.
Glass, a product of other people' s dreams her entire life, is now a woman in search of authenticity. She sheds her ex-husband/coach, shakes free from her business manager, and lands not only in jail, but eventually in the arms of her stalker. As her handlers panic, Glass finally walks away as the author of her own story. Biting the Apple pokes fun at some of our dearest-held postmodern ideas about the existence of a true self and humanity as product.
Said to be a little bit lesbian.
