I just loved this book. Once I started it I couldn't put it down. I felt that it realistically portrayed how hard life must have been for gay people living in this time. I found all the characters three dimensional and felt that the writer wrote them all with compassion. I couldn't help but be drawn into their world.
There were no bad guys here for me. It was a complicated story and I couldn't guess how it would end. I felt so much for Paul who was trying so hard to do the right thing and grew to love the character of Patrick. I so wanted every one of them to be happy in the end, but the book was just too realistic for that.
All in all, Marion Husband created a world I didn't want to leave. So I was very glad when I found out that these characters also appear in Marion's 'Paper Moon' and I went on to read that. I loved finding out what had happened to them down the years.
