"This charmer serves scorching heat in a sugar coating."- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY "An engrossing and delightful read."- NEWSARAMA Patience is a kindhearted country girl, eking out a living in Edwardian England as tremors of social change rock the world around her. When she starts her employment in formal service on the grounds of an opulent country manor, she has no idea that her own personal revolution is about to begin. Selfless, dutiful, and just a touch naive, she takes to both her place as a parlor maidand to her new roommate, the bookish and progressive lady's maid, Esther. In another time, the two women would have kept one another's company forever in their little attic bedroom, living out their days in the employ of a Lord. But it's now the dawn of a new age. The expanding empire has brought with it not only plundered wealth, but worldliness and new ideas. Suffragists agitate in the street, idle-rich bohemians challenge sexual mores, and Patience and Esther slowly come to realize theworld is wider and full of more adventure and opportunity than they ever imagined . . . so long as they find the will to seize it. Sensual, sweet, and beautifully illustrated, PATIENCE & ESTHER is a steamy period romance and an inspirational erotic journey across the epic sweep of history, from the end of a gilded age to the start of an uncharted future.… (altro)

Sweet period romance with satisfyingly erotic (explicit) moments throughout. I like that the author took pains to present a realistic relationship, and to celebrate that connection rather than taking on large conflicts. I am hoping for a continuation of the story, when we see Esther's family come to town. Lovely.

A fairy-tale early-1900s LGBTQ+ love story that is erotic, sweet, and moving. Thick and dense, the slow build as we get to know the characters intimately pays off well in the end.

I've never watched Downton Abbey or Upstairs, Downstairs, but this reminds me of one of my favorite manga series, Emma by Kaoru Mori, but with the addition of a whole hell of a lot of very explicit sex scenes.

What a terrific read for Valentine's Day (and entirely random since I just take whatever is on the left side of my shelf of library books). ( )

CA: illustrations of nudity and sex

This graphic novel is subtitled "An Edwardian Romance," and it does what it says on the tin. We follow Patience and Esther, two women in service, as they fall in love and navigate how to build a life together. There's a lot of realism on the page here about life in Edwardian England (suffragists and suffragettes, racism, colonialism), but while there are some references to the fact that Patience and Esther's relationship would not be accepted and the cannot get married legally, mostly the realism keeps its hands off their love. We don't have to see them deal with homophobia, for instance, and I am here for that. I always love a romance that is hopeful and aspirational when it gets the tone right, and this one absolutely does. Patience and Esther and both wonderful characters, and I loved following their story. It was also a delight to see a fat woman portrayed not only as lovable *as* she is but *for* exactly what she is. Recommended. Do mind my content advisory and be aware that this graphic novel is meant for adults only. ( )
