They choose to live together and love each other freely, even though they know of no precedents for their relationship- they must trust their own instincts and see beyond the disdain of their neighbors. Ultimately, they are forced to make life-changing decisions that depend on their courage and their commitment to one another.First self-published in 1969 in an edition of one thousand copies, the author hand-sold the book on New York street corners- it (under its later title: Patience and Sarah) garnered increasing attention to the point of receiving the American Library Associations first Gay Book Award in 1971.

McGraw-Hills version of the book a year later brought it to mainstream bookstores across the country.
