When Gabriel MacKenna enters Wentworth Prison in 1931, he promises himself two things: never to be buggered and never to turn prison queer. Tough, smart, and ruthless in a fight, he quickly makes a name for himself inside. But Gabriel, saved from the noose by a social crusader, is serving two life sentences. And life is a very long time to endure Wentworth with no comforts but prison food, card games and cigarettes. To survive endless days without the touch of another human being...Five years after Gabriel’s incarceration, Joey Cooper arrives at Wentworth. Every convict claims imprisonment through a miscarriage of justice, but Joey is truly blameless. Trained at Oxford as a physician, the young doctor is innocent of prison culture and too handsome for his own good. Facing eighteen years behind Wentworth’s towering gates, Joey cannot hope to survive without protection. And protection is just what Gabriel MacKenna offers. At a price...

I don't even think there are words to describe how I feel about this book right now. I knew it was going to be brutal, but I didn't know it was also going to be beautiful. For such a short book, it packs a punch that I know I will be feeling for a long time. This is a movie-book - the kind of boo...

2.5 Just not my cup of tea -
I don't believe that you can start loving your rapist in real life. This was a "Hate and Love" thing for me. I am not a fan of rape and I didn't really buy into the way this "love story" developed - this notwithstanding it was a beautiful read.So I am quite conflicted about it.The writing was bril...

Very good read set in a British prison in the late 1930s. The prison life is vividly sketched. There's a slow progression from non-con sex to love; the prison life and rules make it believable and almost reasonable (!).I didn't like the coda at the end.

Once in a while I read something outside of my comfort zone; this is one of those books. I knew, given that Gabe was serving a life sentence, that it wouldn't end well. But a book like this makes the read so worthwhile. Every. Single. Tear. Too.
