Can you recognize that her lover is a woman from this part of the sentence?
A doctor’s daughter hides her lover--
I am afraid you cannot, or you automatically think it is a man.
In my language, we use a single word for male or female lover, which is what got me into this situation.
Would the next sentence be more understandable?
A doctor’s gay daughter hides her lover--
Would it be better if I use:
A doctor’s daughter hides her gay lover–
Any other suggestions how to write this without that it is too much on the nose? Is there another, single word for a female lover instead of writing her female lover or gay daughter?
