    Summary

    For over a century, two northern California farming families, the Airds and Belivets, have been at odds. They raised various crops over the decades, but both clans began to concentrate on growing and harvesting walnuts in the 1920s. Deadly gun violence haunted this feud in the 19th Century. Later, the weapons became words and societal backstabbing.

    Therese Belivet returns to the groves in 1967 to teach at the local high school. Low and behold, Carol Aird's daughter, Rindy, is in Therese's Honors English class. Will it be two cats in a burlap sack or a pair of lovelorn souls discovering romance among the Walnut groves?

    Summary

    Therese Belivet flees the shadows of her youth, seeking a new life. The shifting America of 1962 is rife with opportunities for such rebirth. She's paid her dues; the hard-won Master's Degree and Teaching Credential top her resume. The twenty-two-year-old needs a chance, a break. Might a high-school English department head be her ray of light? Carol Aird of New York Public School District #3 has a discerning eye for talent and character; she seeks both at the New York State Teachers Employment Fair.

    Can a true, forever love blossom in an ordinary school setting?

    Summary

    She asked once, how Abby met women.

    A smile curled across Abby’s face. “There are places… in the city. Beyond that, sometimes there’s just a way of looking at someone. The way they look back at you. A gaze that lingers a little too long.”

    Carol knew what Abby was alluding to. She’d experienced it countless times herself, with Abby, with other women. Sometimes unreciprocated, Carol left staring on her own, other times there was eye contact that lasted beyond simple acknowledgement. Carol had always chalked it up to pure admiration, though. And she’d never been compelled enough to act further, as much as she would’ve liked to. No, she wasn’t one to take chances, only pursuing sure bets.

    Until one day, she went to the store. Goddamn Frankenberg’s.

    Summary

    A desperate woman must elude two groups of pursuers: deadly foreign agents and her own pathetically deceived Federal and state law enforcement agencies. She needs to rest, heal, and refuel. Will a sleepy inn nestled among California’s ancient Sequoias provide respite? Can the lovely innkeeper mend this fugitive's shattered heart?

    Once again, I'm writing in third person limited from Therese’s perspective.

    Summary

    I listed Carol (2015) in the fandoms, but this story is strictly a TPOS sequel. I know there are scores of them, but I have only read a couple. So, forgive me if I touch on similarities; it's inevitable.

    Like Highsmith did in The Price of Salt, this story is in third person limited. Of my ten previous Carol AUs, only one has been written from that point of view, Spitfire Dawn. It's time for another challenge.

    Summary

    This posting starts a multiple chapter story of Carol and Therese's lives together after six years. They are still living in New York City in their Madison Avenue apartment. As you can tell by this first chapter, our heroines are still very much in love. I envision a number of interesting twists and turns, plus references to history of the LGBT rights movement as this point in time. I have tried to be accurate with publications as well. The ones cited in this chapter are real.

    Summary

    Therese, along her co-workers and friends, decided to stay in the Hotel & Casino they had been working in once they finished their responsibilities to try their luck. Carol was celebrating her freedom after signing her divorce, not caring if she was on her own, though such situation changed when both women found themselves in the same place. Alcohol led them to do something that wouldn’t have done if they had been clear-headed … but perhaps they could take advantage of their mistake to achieve their own personal interests.

    Summary

    Hello, this is my very first fanfic. It is in continuation of the movie, and starts off with Therese at Phil and Dannie's party. I have read so many wonderful fanfics over the last few weeks, and thought I would give it a try. I am not the best writer, but really had fun developing this first chapter. I hope to continue with this story as long as I can. I welcome any advice and feedback as well as I continue to build this story.
    Thank you so much for reading!
    Enjoy!
