A Gay Coming Of Age Southern Gothic
When Emmett Ray moves to the hills of Tennessee, he never expected to meet the boy of his dreams. Robert Lee is a sandy-blonde hillbilly angel with an accent as thick as the Daniel Boone National Forest. Before Emmett arrived, he wasn't sure what he wanted out of life. Now, he'll stop at nothing to make Emmett his boy.
However, when his father catches him sneaking back home after curfew, he bans Robert Lee from seeing Emmett ever again. An altercation ensues, prompting Robert Lee to run away, but that’s not the end of his troubles. Can two virgin boys on the road to manhood discover what it takes to be together in such a prejudiced atmosphere, or will the love they found be lost forever inside the backwoods of adversity?
Join best-selling author Daniel Elijah Sanderfer for this beautiful lament of adolescence and discover the true meaning of love and family.
