Read Elena Undone Online Free - Elena. A wife who will not question her loyalty to a husband she does not love nor her duty to a church whose tenets she does not fully accept.
Peyton. A lesbian trapped in an arid relationship and a life that has brought her success but scant emotional sustenance.
Their eyes first meet across the distance of a public park. One glance is all it takes for ignition. A slow-building sexual fire soon becomes a conflagration that engulfs both their lives.
But no matter how compelling the attraction, no matter how intensely love may reach into the depths of either of their souls, reality is inflexible. Elena’s husband is pastor of a church; her son is the center of her life; and she is haunted by a burden of grief and guilt that fixes her firmly in the conventional life she leads.
From Nicole Conn, novelist and multi-award-winning director of little man, writer-director of the legendary lesbian film Claire of the Moon, comes this powerful love story--a luminously romantic film as evocative as it is erotic (and already famous for its Longest Kiss in Cinema History)—and now a novel that reveals every moment of Elena’s unforgettable journey.

I've seen the movie first, and I liked it (aside from a few elements of it), so I was interested in the book, it was made of, and though it's rare for me to say, but in my opinion it was better as a movie.
The book itself could use some more beta reading/editing and there are quite a few repetitiv...

Nicole Conn takes you through the consequences, conflict, confusion, and necessary, but painful, actions that must be taken to follow your heart to your soul mate if you aren...

I think its a very carefully crafted book that deserves a read, especially if you liked the movie.

Perhaps I've just had enough of romance novels and they all start to blur together. I struggled to find any originality in the story but gave up after a while. One selling point of this book is that it's realistic - very true to human relationships and brutally honest about family structures.

I completely devoured this book...
In relation to the film Elena Undone, the book (as they often are) is a more detailed version of the story between Elena and Peyton. You'll see a little more background particularly between Peyton and her relationship with Margaret prior to meeting Elena, and a...

I seriously and whole heartily loved this book.. First off just from seeing some of the clip's from the movie (which I refused to watch until I read the book) I just knew by the end I would fall in love with Elena which I did.. but when I closed the book smiling my heart was smiling for Peyton. T...

Ok when I read the first few chapters I got extremely bored I didn't understand the author way of writing it was weird and chaotic 'at least to me' and it had soooo many filler pages and conversation that didn't lead anywhere, it didn't contribute to the story in anyway but after almost half of t...

Dont we just love story with happy endings? Even its pretty much the predictable storyline, sacrificing every for true love. Life is tough sometimes, all we need is something that can give us hope, and idealistic dream to dream about.
As always the book is better than the movie, with its details a...

I watched the movie a few months ago and enjoyed it. I finished the book today and then watched the movie again tonight and got more out of the film because of the background and more in depth knowledge of Elena and Peyton's relationship.
The book had a few issues for me - loads of missing commas...

I saw the movie first and I love it, then I bought the book. The movie for obvious reasons does not contain the full story and that made the book so much interesting to read as you were getting the details. Nicole Conn is such a great writter/director that you keep reading her story as you never...
