Author: Gordon, Christie Set In . . .
 Europe, Ireland
Genre: Other
Time Frame: None
Description: In 1920's Ireland, Shannon understands all too well that the love and
hunger he feels for his best friend, Ciaran, is forbidden.  He's already
shunned by his town and emotionally damaged from enduring painful
confessions after a male teacher's molestation at age fourteen.  But
when he finds Ciaran in a barn, grieving over the sudden death of his
mother, a hasty and desperate embrace shatters an unspoken boundary
between them.  Then, Shannon and Ciaran are sent on a journey to Dublin
to bring a family heirloom to Ciaran's aunt.  Along the way, a drunken
evening leads to an illicit act in a hotel room, confusing Ciaran and
forcing them both down a treacherous path of deceit and desire.  Can
love overcome the obstacles of Irish society, the Catholic Church, and
political unrest?
