Lesbian YA Book Review of ‘The Women of Dauphine’ by Deb Jannerson
3.50 Stars. This is a lesbian YA book that was well written but hard to read. Trigger warnings include violence, abuse, sexual assault, suicide, and the one that really bothered me, conversion therapy. Actually, had I realized this book included children in conversion therapy I would have passed on it. I do want to make clear though this is not NineStar Press’ fault or the author’s but mine for not reading the whole book blurb.
I find book blubs to often contain spoilers, so I tend to skim or ignore them altogether. I read the first paragraph, saw that this was a lesfic YA-paranormal-romance, and immediately grabbed this book. I just ignored the conversion therapy part that is clearly sitting right there in paragraph two of the blurb.Read More »
