Diana is a 28 year old blonde, described by everyone who has ever met her as gorgeous. She is also intensely sexual. Unfortunately her appetites and beauty have proved her undoing on many past occasions; she has been exploited herself and has used others others, sometimes remorselessly, in return. She once believed she had found her ultimate partner but... Diana tries to put the experience out of her mind. If only she could find that place where beauty is for everyone! Where people are within what they appear to be on the surface. She is confused, too. Diana has had many boyfriends but suspects that beneath her exterior of sexual bravado she has a deeper, more fundamental need; a natural and long-supressed yearning for sexual gratification with other women. After all, there was that time a few years back that she so vividly recalls. Could this insincerity to her herself be the root of her problem?
She is pondering these things on a cathartic flight from New York to San Francisco when for no evident reason her plane de pressurises, plunges to the ground and is utterly destroyed. No one could possibly survive such a disaster. But one person does. Diana.
But where is this place? This vast, tranquil meadow on that perfect moonlit night? Why are there no roads or towns and why does everything feel so special? So safe? Why does this wilderness not feel like a wilderness at all but a kindly and comfortable, almost cosseting place? Still more to the point, who is she? Her amnesia is total.
By some means - possibly inexplicable, possibly not - Diana has been transported to the Valley of Lesbos. This is a world where men do not exist and where all women are healthy, beautiful and very, very sexual. The Lesbians live in strict harmony with Nature and their reward for such obedience is an abundant land of meadows, rivers and forests where all of life's necessities are plentiful for the taking. So perfect is the climate of their lush valley that the women have no knowledge of clothing and indeed deem it blasphemy against the principal goddess, Nature, to cover the body. Their leader is a tall, willow blonde very much like Diana and she rules alone. For the first time in Lesbian history a Leader ascended without a joint-leader, a sister, a partner, to govern by her side. Yet she is reassured by their civilisation's creed as recorded in the Ancient Codex, their laws and gospel, that her partner will be brought to her from afar on the night that a star shall be seen to fall from the heavens. Re-assured but not wholly convinced, for the Leader feels likewise that Fate is disinclined to deal a her a fair hand.
That partner is Diana. But will she agree to spending the rest of her life in the nude? To having sex with women both prolifically and publicly? Will she to all intents and purpose accede to marriage with a woman she would in her own society perceive as the head of a gang of lesbian swingers? It is up to the women of the Valley of Lesbos to convince her.
…'It goes like this. You and I are sisters - not in that we were given birth by the same woman - but in that we are twin souls destined from the beginning of time to be as one. I am desperately in love with you and I hope that you will rediscover the love it is proper that you should hold for me. My own, for you, is the most profound which could ever exist between two women. It is made no less keen by the fact that I really haven't known you very long at all.' A furtive glance. 'Let me qualify. I haven't known you physically. Not to be with. Not to talk to. Though you have filled my dreams from the moment I was old enough to think.'…
