“Wow, I’m kinda lost for words, I loved this book and can’t recommend it highly enough. Set amongst the mountains of Gatlinburg, Christopher lives alone in his Grandmother’s house having been shunned by his religious mother and stepfather. He settled there after failing to make it big in Nashville and now works as a singer on stage at a theme park. Jesse has been a long time fan of Christopher’s, admiring him from afar. The two meet when Christopher commissions him to make a locket for his grandmother. Jesse grew up in that town and is surprised to discover that Christopher doesn’t know about his baggage. He not only has two young children but also has a wife who is brain dead and being kept alive by machines – a decision he wants overturned. The story follows these men as they embark on a relationship and find themselves struggling to cope with the present and the past and not knowing how a future together would be possible. The chemistry between them is palpable and their story’s heart breaking. I was hooked from the first page and will certainly be checking out other works by this author.”
