It is 1963. Being gay is a sin against God. And twenty-eight year old mechanic Will meets Bran for the first time.Over the years a close bond forms between them despite the seventeen year age difference. Will teaches Bran to swim and helps him with homework. The years pass, Bran drops out of school and moves away.Then Bran comes home. Can Will move past their age difference? And if he does, how can he keep Bran in 1970 America?A beautifully told tale of love and loss told from the viewpoint of a deeply closeted gay man at the very beginning of the American Gay and Lesbian Rights movement.REVIEW--"Marie Sexton has penned a powerfully emotional and moving tale that teaches us to live each day to its fullest, to reach out and capture what happiness we can when we can, and to be abundantly grateful for those experiences that would become cherished memories when time and fate deem to interrupt our plans for the future. "This story is my definition of the embodiment of outstanding literature. It is solidly written, seductive, and absolutely sublime in its emotional impact. Will and Bran are two fully realized protagonists who staked out a corner of my heart and proceeded to set up residence there where they will be remembered for a long time to come."Lisa for Author Interviews, Book Reviews, and More

A heartbreaking, sad and yet wonderful book. Despite the ending, it's worth reading.

This was such a beautiful book and I can’t even begin to tell you how much I liked it. It’s a very short story and I really don’t want to give away that many details, but I had to write how good it was and hopefully encourage people to read it.For the rest of my review go here.
