On the day her son leaves home, Lorna Friern makes a long-planned escape from her loveless marriage. With one suitcase, her laptop, and a box full of books, she leaves L.A. to drive to a new life in a house she's inherited in Long Island. On the same day, after Northern Californian wildfires burn down the motel where she lives and the bar where she works, Zoe Bradshaw decides to move on again. Her destination, Las Vegas. Maybe. Or home to her family. Maybe.
The two women meet on the road and when Zoe's old junker of a car finally gives up the ghost, she accepts the offer to travel with Lorna for a while. perhaps all the way to New York. Lorna wasn't looking for romance so soon after leaving her marriage, but chance put Zoe in her way and Lorna doesn't want to leave her behind. Sharing a car and motel room beds, the two women learn each other's histories and secrets. Only at the end of the journey will they know if they've escaped the past, as it makes its last grabs at both of them.

Two very different women looking for life changes happen to meet at a diner and their worlds change…and we get to be voyeurs to their love affair.
Zoe Bradshaw's home and work has been destroyed by a wildfire, so she decides it's time for a change. Married for 18 years, Lorna Friern has left her husband in search of a new life and the chance to be herself. An unexpected encounter between the two women lead them on a cross country road trip that bonds them in ways neither expected but both embrace.
How much did I love INTO THE SUNRISE!? I don't often get to read straight up lesbian romance stories, but whenever they come up as an option for review, I jump on them. I'm thrilled that this story didn't just focus on the women hopping into bed, but instead let their friendship and intimate relationship develop organically as they got to know each other in a more meaningful way. The scenery and cities described as the women worked their way across the country was very well done, as were the gorgeous and loving sex scenes. I adored these two very different women together: Zoe the broke drifter and Lorna the housewife who lacked for nothing. But the unlikely couple find soul mates in one another and it's a really beautiful story. I want more from Ms. Black!
Bottom Line: If you're a fan of lesbian romance that isn't all wild sexcapades but instead has a lovely story line, INTO THE SUNRISE will be a great read for you!
