Hope... With her tousled blond hair and brilliant blue eyes, graduate student Hope Kaznot is as beautiful as she is brainy. The produce of a well-bred Boston family, Hope never lets on that behind her polished exterior her life is spinning out of control.
Pamela... As charming as she is ruthless, Professor Panela Severson is a charismatic academic whose goal is to outshine every other lesbian feminist critic in the world. Overendowed in the ego department, she believes that her lofty intellect gives her the right to break all the rules--including the one about not sleeping with her students.
Rachel... Hope's best friend, fellow student Rachel Smyth has spent the spring semester trying to convine Hope to take a much-needed vacation from school--and from Pamela. Afraid to fall in love again, but unable to stop herself, Rachel is drawn to Hope's endearing vulnerability.
Emerson... trying to make some sense of her life, Hope decides to spend the summer with Rachel and her two lesbian moms in their home town of Heroy, New Mexico. There she meets rollerblading tomboy Emerson Wells, a talented sculpto whose outward flamboyance is masking a broken heart.
