Book Description

A chance encounter on a country bus. A brush of thigh against thigh and a sideways, then a downward, glance. Nineteen-year-olds Tom and Mick could hardly have guessed the epic nature of the journey they were setting out on. A journey that would take them into business partnership together. A journey that would bring them little by little to the deepest reaches of the human heart. An adventure that would catapult them into the sweet and sometimes painful mysteries of life and sex and love.

More About the Author

Anthony McDonald is the author of 'Adam', an acknowledged coming-of-age classic, and 'Blue Sky Adam', which takes that story six years forward in time. 'Getting Orlando' combines thriller with love story in a novel of adventure and travel. 'Orange Bitter, Orange Sweet' opens a Spanish trilogy: six young people who meet in Seville in 1977 grow to maturity in 'Along The Stars' and 'Woodcock Flight'.
New works have recently been added to the list: 'Ralph, Diary of a Gay Teen' and 'The Dog in the Chapel', two stories with boarding-school settings; then there is 'Psychological Thriller: Ivor's Ghosts', as well as short story collection 'Matches in the Dark', and ten novels in the series, Gay Romance.
McDonald has worked in the theatre in every capacity except that of electrician, and taught English in Paris and provincial France. He now lives in rural East Sussex, among friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars THANK GOD FOR A GAY ROMANCE 29 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Firstly a confession. I'm a bit of a romantic at heart. And having spent years reading gay themed stories that end up tragically, as in those days gay people were seen to be in need of some ultimate punishment for being homosexual and against the so called norm, it is so gratifying to read a well written gay romance that has, as all romances must, a happy ending. Thank god for Anthony McDonald!

Years ago I found a book of his called Adam, which became an instant favourite of mine, partly because it was set in France, where I have lived, and partly because I fell for the main character (plus a few of the others, it has to be admitted!). Obviously this new one is a genre novel, so in weight and style is lighter than his other more serious works, but he has brought to it all his powers of characterisation and description and of place that you would expect from a master of his craft. Plus some very satisfactory scenes of a sexual nature!

To précis the story would be pointless; in this genre it is the journey that counts, and you want the two youngsters Mick and Tom to reach their goal of happiness, despite setbacks. Set in the garden of England, Kent, and Scotland, with one boy from a rich family and the narrator from a poorer one, this is an ideal read for anyone who likes to curl up and inwardly purr with contentment!

Just discovered on Kindle that there is a second novel in what is obviously going to become a series, Gay Romance on Garda, so no doubt that will be full of Italian heat and passion! Have to say too that I love the covers. They are also themed. If you look the Garda one up, you'll see what I mean. Clever silhouettes!

Thank you Anthony McDonald. All in all a five star read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sheer romance 25 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Pure Mills & Boon in a young gay form; boy meets boy and they live happily ever after. Important issues are brought up but not handled seriously. There is the particular situation of Mick finding the eleven year old Orlando very attractive.There was a hope at this point that more interesting territory was being entered but no, the incident was just passed off .Why introduce something like this and then just drop it? The only good thing about the book is the sex!
