I’m not sure how to review this.
For me it was a 4.5 star read.
It is a complete novel with the basis being a ‘straight’ guy in a small town suddenly changing teams. And the small town reacting in a variety of ways. This is more than just the love story of Travis and Wesley, this is a narrative of being gay in a small town. Where people are only too happy to voice their disapproval, and in some cases, approval, of Travis’ new love. For the most part, this shines the town in a good light, as the majority of townsfolk come around eventually. Realising that Travis is still Travis but now a happier version than the last 4 years since his wife died.
It was a well written novel which could have continued on really. Although we have the ending that we are all hoping for.
The only reason I didn’t give this 5 stars was due to the fact that I feel like integral parts of the initial start of Wes and Travis’ love were kind of skipped over. And this may have been to keep the book at a reasonable size, but it went from agreeing to give it a shot to two months later with them being in pretty much a full on relationship. Just not telling people about it but not really hiding it either.
I would have preferred to read the parts that were glossed over.
That being said, this is a wonderful story of small town life. It’s about learning to make a stand and not letting others change you or make you run to the nearest big city.
