Xena / Uber

This story is about two women - both in a place that heroes don't usually hear heroes come from - prison. We journey into their lives through the eyes of Angel. This story is full of the joy of love found in a place that is cold. Sounds melodramatic but that's the case. Sue has weaved a story that captures you from the first paragraph and you want to know more about. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
