This book is about women in heterosexual marriages who discover or come to terms with their lesbianism or bisexuality. It answers questions such as how women make this discovery, what they do once they realize their same-gender sexuality, how family and friends deal with the situation, and what happens to marriages and families. This second edition contains a new introduction, three new chapters, a glossary of gay-related terms, and a new list of additional reading.

“Pardon me; I must seem to you so stupid! Why is the property of the woman who commits Murder, and the property of the woman who commits Matrimony, dealt with alike by your law?” So ends the “little allegory” in conversational form with which Frances Power Cobbe opens the 1868 essay that gives this collection its title. Cobbe was a widely read essayist of remarkable lucidity and power; her pieces display incisive wit and remarkable focus as she returns repeatedly to “the woman question,” but it was typical of the time that when Cobbe died she was described in the Wellesley Index to Victorian periodicals as a “miscellaneous writer.” Cobbe was not alone; as much as 15 per cent of the essays in Victorian periodicals were written by women, yet even the best of these pieces were allowed by the male-dominated world of scholarship to disappear from print. This anthology makes available again some of the best Victorian writing by women. The second edition has been revised and updated; additions include a chronology and an essay by Frances Power Cobbe on the education of women.

Almost half of all married men, and slightly fewer married women, admit to having had at least one affair. This is the book for the woman who finds herself involved with such a married man! This is absolutely not a "how to become a mistress" book. It offers help to those who are already finding themselves in this situation so everyone involved survives the experience as unharmed as possible under the circumstances, especially the "Other Woman" herself. Insightful, at times funny, and always straight to the point, this book is a "must read" for every "Other Woman!" And let us not forget that there is a betrayed wife and a cheating husband for every Other Woman. This book would be an eyeopener for many of those, too.
