Just beautiful-a really sad, haunting love story,
This review is from: My Policeman (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The eternal triangle told from an unique perspective and written with such emotion, warmth and understanding it'll make you weep. What a refreshing concept, basing a book on a love triangle involving two men and a woman but; the men are in love with one another. The author delves deeper and deeper into her characters, unearthing more and more of their personality, which means you become involved, they feel like friends and not ink and paper shadows. A lot of tragedy befalls these three lovely folk as the author unravels what must be the ultimate conundrum and I was an emotional wreck at times. Not a "frothy" lightweight romance by any stretch of the imagaination. These men had to hide, and hide well, otherwise they could have lost everything, including the careers they'd worked so hard for, and you do get a sense of that "threat", there's a dark shadow throughout the book. It does seem unfair that a young woman is used, drawn in under false pretences to become a "gay wife", her grief is palpable but; it happens in reality never mind fiction. There are some serious issues bravely explored in "My Policeman" and the author handles the whole concept with sensitivity and dignity all of the way through.
